IRENE, South Africa -- U.S. National Team coach Bob Bradley said Sunday that he expects to see goalkeeper Tim Howard to return to play in the World Cup.

As of Sunday morning, Howard's condition had not been evaluated after he suffered bruised ribs in a collision with England's Emile Heskey in the 1-1 Group C draw in Rustenburg Saturday night.

Asked if he thought Howard would play against Slovenia in the Group C encounter on Friday, Bradley replied, "At this time there is no answer. When you see Tim handle himself after the collision [Saturday] night, you expect he will be on the field again."

Howard, the man of the match after making seven saves, several of them spectacular, against England, was scheduled to be evaluated later Sunday.

"Obviously, he was sore," Bradley said. "He did a great job of taking a tough hit."
