Watch Jozy Altidore Demolish Bosnia & Herzegovina with a Natural Hat Trick [VIDEO]
Make no mistake — Wednesday’s come-from-behind win for US Soccer was a team effort. But for the Red, White and Blue, thank goodness Jozy Altidore is on their team!
After Bosnia and Herzegovina made the United States pay, taking a 2-0 halftime lead and all the wind out of the Americans’ sails and putting the 11-game US win streak in serious jeopardy. Enter Altidore, who had a streak of his own he was trying to keep intact, having scored in five consecutive games. Thanks to the forward’s efforts, both streaks are alive and kicking.
Altidore scored in the 59th, 85th and 87th minutes; his second goal — a beautiful curling free kick — giving the US an improbable lead, his third the eventual game-winner. He even assisted on Eddie Johnson’s goal to open the scoring for coach Jurgen Klinsmann’s side.
