Jozy Altidore on the attack

SANDY, Utah — There was a moment in the second half Tuesday night when Jozy Altidore, the enigmatic striker for the US national soccer team, watched a defender for Honduras send a pass back toward the goalkeeper. It was a steamy night at Rio Tinto Stadium and Altidore had been running for much of the game; he could have easily stayed put and watched the goalkeeper, Noel Valladares, take the ball and boot it downfield.

Instead, Altidore stirred, sprinting toward the endline. As Valladares received the ball, he saw the pressure from Altidore and had to shift quickly to the side, ultimately struggling to get a hurried blast away just as Altidore slid nearby.
