Altidore: No Timetable For My Return

AltidoreU.S. forward Jozy Altidore said on Friday he does not know when he will be able to return to World Cup play after being sidelined with a hamstring injury during the United States’ 2-1 win over Ghana on Monday.

“I’m not really setting any timetable [to return]. I’m just focused on getting myself right and being the best cheerleader for the team,” Altidore said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

“I think we have a lot of good players who are going to step in right away and do a great job for us. For myself, it’s just staying mentally prepared and doing the best I can to get on the field as soon as possible.”

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann has given the team no word yet on who will replace Altidore in Sunday’s Group G World Cup match vs. Portugal, said forward Aron Johannsson on Friday.

“Whenever he’s ready to let us know who’s going to start, then he’ll do it,” the 23-year-old Icelandic-American said. “We just have to wait until he makes his decision.”
