Jozy Altidore Out Against Portugal

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 20:17:00 +0000

Michael Steele/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- United States forward Jozy Altidore will not play in the Group G game against Portugal on Sunday.

Altidore suffered a strained left hamstring in the 2-1 victory over Ghana on Monday.

"He will not be available for Sunday's game, but we are hopeful he will be available in the tournament," U.S. Soccer spokesman Michael Kammarman said of Altidore.

Altidore has scored 12 goals this season split between the United States national team and Sunderland of the English Premier League.

United States captain Clint Dempsey, who broke his nose in the win on Monday, told ESPN on Thursday that he "probably will not wear a mask" against Portugal.
