Jozy Altidore finally breaks his scoring drought, right in time for World Cup

June 7th, 2014

It’s been a long, frustrating six months for Jozy Altidore. The USA and Sunderland striker hadn’t scored since December 4th, 2013.

With the World Cup just around the corner, Altidore was in desperate need of a goal to get the weight off of his shoulders. Finally, in the USA’s final tune-up match before leaving for Brazil, he broke through:

Sure, it wasn’t anything particularly special from Altidore — the build-up from his teammates was far more impressive — but at this point, even the simple tap-in will do the American striker.

Now Altidore can head to the World Cup without the scoring drought hanging over his head — but the pressure to score in Brazil will certainly still be there.

UPDATE: Jozy scored again. It was much, much prettier this time.
