Soccer News: US Forward Jozy Altidore Sprains Ankle In Practice


Jozy scared us all, but he looks like he’s going to be ok.

Altidore was taken to a local hospital for X-Rays which showed nothing more than a mild sprain. Altidore is listed as day-to-day heading into the last friendly against Australia before the World Cup starts next weekend.

Altidore will undergo a fitness test Friday to determine whether he can play Saturday.

Altidore is one of the young players on Team USA that will be looked at to carry some of the scoring load for the team in the World Cup.
