Soccer News: US Players Jozy Altidore And Oguchi Onyewu Cleared To Play


Both players have been recovering from leg injuries and both have been given the green light to play against England if coach Bradley decides to use them.

Altidore sprained an ankle during practice last week and missed the final tune-up game against Australia.

“Cost him a couple days, but from the start we knew that this was very minor,” Bradley said Wednesday. “The fact that he’s back in regular training certainly means that he’s available for whatever role we choose for Saturday.”

Onyewu tore his patella tendon in the final World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica on October 14th. He has played in the last three tune-up matches, but has been used in a limited role.
