Guzan registered his first cap in 2006 and has been Howard's backup ever since. He started two crucial World Cup qualifying games in March 2013, keeping clean sheets against Costa Rica in the snow game and at Mexico.
Drafted No. 2 overall by Chivas USA in 2005, Guzan went on to win MLS Goalkeeper of the Year in 2007. In the middle of the 2008 season Guzan was transferred to Aston Villa in the English Premier League. After not getting many opportunities in his first few seasons with the club, Guzan became the Villans full-time starter during the 2012-13 season.
