Jozy Altidore: he scores when he wants.
Ok, not really, but the American scored in his third straight game, the latest a goal vs. Panama that gave the U.S. a 1-0 halftime lead in Seattle Tuesday night. Credit, or hat-tip if you will, Fabian Johnson for the pass and Michael Bradley for just being all-around awesome. (Love the silence from Ian Darke after the goal, letting the crowd in Northwest do the work.)
Only a minute or two earlier, Altidore looked to have drawn a clear penalty, but it wasn’t awarded by the Mexican official.
If the U.S. holds on and takes three points here, figure the talk about the crappy temporary surface laid at CenturyLink Field becomes an afterthought very quickly.
