December 4, 2013. Not the date you broke up with your girlfriend to cheap your way out of a Christmas gift, but the date the last time USMNT forward Jozy Altidore scored a goal.
It’s hard to explain why he hasn’t found net for both club or country. But that doesn’t mean the striker has lost form. In fact, Jozy’s remained pretty confident.
Altidore is still energetic and has maintained the fundamentals essential for the goal scoring barrage we saw at this time last year.
Against a Turkey team that had their chances- but also carried a scoring drought of their own- Jozy pressed high and hard (like your girlfriend), ran at the defense, (and again like your chick), knocked down balls for teammates.
Paired with Clint Dempsey on the front line only means more opportunity for Altidore. If the defense can click and keep the Yanks close, Ghana, Portugal, and Germany will be in for quite a disappointing date with the team. Much like your- ah, forget it.
