U.S. ‘Full Of Hope’ In Jozy Altidore’s Return

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann is confident that striker Jozy Altidore can still play a role at this World Cup despite the strained left hamstring he suffered in the first half of the Americans’ 2-1 win over Ghana on Monday night.

Altidore had an MRI on his hamstring on Tuesday, and Klinsmann said the team would watch how he responds this week.

“We’ve got to see how he now reacts the next couple of days with his hamstring, and we’re full of hope that he comes back still in the tournament,” Klinsmann told reporters at a Tuesday news conference held at Sao Paulo FC’s training facility, the Yanks’ home base while in Brazil.
