USMNT: A Much-Needed Defense of Jozy Altidore

One of the main talking points to emerge from the recent string of United States Men’s National Team games in May and June was the future of USMNT striker Jozy Altidore.

Altidore was released late by his club, AZ Alkmaar, and joined the USMNT two weeks after the U.S. training camp had opened.

That delay created an opening which Herculez Gomez used to put together several solid performances for the Nats and left many USMNT fans writing off Altidore.

Here are some comments from recent articles about the USMNT:

Altidor (sic) is a joke

I would hate to be Klinnsman (sic) and have to choose a striker. OUTTHEDOOR is a sad excuse for one. He is lazy, does not defend and cannot raise the level of his game when needed. He needs to simply go away


He shoots like he has ricketts (sic) in his legs.

Here are eight reasons USMNT fans need to take a deep breath, step back from the situation and give Jozy a break.
