On Tuesday, Team USA goalkeeper Tim Howard put in a heroic performance during his side's 2-1 defeat to Belgium at the World Cup.
Howard made a record-breaking number of saves during the match, which was eventually decided in extra time.
The internet declared Howard the saviour of mankind and his name trended for hours.
Now U.S. president Barack Obama has taken the time to praise Howard and his captain Clint Dempsey.
The White House released video of Obama making the call.
Clint you were fantastic...Tim, I think, I don't know how you are going to survive the mobs when you come back home man. You are going to have to shave your beard so they don't know who you are.
