Everton's Tim Howard and Aston Villa's Brad Guzan wound up taking the ball out of the net six times in a 3-3 draw in English Premier League action.
Marouane Fellaini scored an 11th-hour equalizer -- his second goal in the second half -- three minutes into stoppage time to allow Everton earn a point instead of none.
U.S. national coach Jurgen Klinsmann will name the U.S.'s 23-man roster for Wednesday's World Cup qualifying match vs. Honduras in San Pedro Sula on Monday afternoon.
Villa striker Christian Benteke put the visitors on the scoreboard with the game only two minutes old as he beat defender Jonny Heitinga and fired the ball past Howard in the second minute before a crowd of 38,121.
Everton's Victor Anichebe took advantage of some poor defending to knot things up at 1-1 in the 21st minute.
However, only three minutes later Villa grabbed the lead as Gabriel Agbonlahor scored into the bottom corner of the net past Guzan for a 2-1 halftime lead.
Villa extended its lead when Benteke added his second goal as he headed the ball past Howard in the 61st minute.
Everton was not done, though, with Fellaini poking the ball home from Anichebe's lay-off before he leveled the score with a header at the near post deep into stoppage time.
