HOUSTON (AP) – U.S. forward Jozy Altidore will miss the rest of the Gold Cup soccer tournament with a strained hamstring, and will be sidelined from 4 to 6 weeks.
Altidore has scored two of the Americans' six goals in the event. He was hurt in the ninth minute of the 2-0 victory against Jamaica on Sunday.
Altidore appeared to be regaining his dangerous form in front of the goal after struggling to get playing time with his European club teams last season. Altidore's two goals tied him with Clint Dempsey for the team lead.
