Goal oriented: Altidore’s striker prowess was finally on display Saturday as Team USA heads to Brazil undefeated.

The U.S. national team got a glimpse of what things could be like in Brazil this month as talented striker JOZY ALTIDORE erupted for 2 goals in a 2-1 World Cup warm-up win against Nigeria Saturday…

It was Altidore’s first goal of 2014, breaking a 28-game drought that goes back six months. But Jozy’s rhyme was far from done. Team USA’s World Cup secret weapon took a pass from Michael Bradley, beat the defender, and unleashed a booming kick into the net to double the U.S. lead over Nigeria…

After the match, an even keeled Altidore talked about team rather than his own resurgent performance…

Peeps may moan at U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann over leaving the great Landon Donovan off the World Cup roster but if Altidore finally gets it going, the U.S. will do just fine in Brazil. They are undefeated when he scores on goal.
