U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team goalie Tim Howard provided quite the prophetic quote for his high school senior yearbook.

“It will take a nation of millions  to hold me back.”

That’s the quote Howard, who made the most recorded saves in a World Cup match during Tuesday’s 2-1 loss to Belgium, offered up for the 1997 yearbook, according to WCBS-TV.

Belgium has a population of about 11 million.

The quote appears to have first been unearthed by a user on the popular Internet forum Reddit.

As BuzzFeed noted, some speculation exists that the quote may have been in reference to Public Enemy’s 1988 hip-hop album, which carried a similar name.
