SAO PAULO (AP) -- Tim Howard hasn't decided whether he will stick around for another World Cup cycle or retire from the U.S. national team.

The 35-year-old goalkeeper says he will talk it over with those close to him before determining whether he wants to play in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Howard left a lasting impression on Americans -- and fans around the world -- for his amazing, improbable saves in the 2-1 loss in extra time to Belgium that sends the U.S. home from the World Cup to a captivated country.

Howard is a big reason for the interest. He has become a Twitter sensation in less than a day, while raising one important question before he leaves Brazil: Will he be back?

Howard's 16 saves in defeat were the most in a World Cup game since FIFA started tracking the statistic in 2002.
