Jozy Altidore Rallies the United States to 4-3 Victory

ELVIS BARUKCIC/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Jozy Altidore saw that his team was struggling, down 2-0 at halftime of their match, and decided to take matters into his own hands.

Altidore scored a hat-trick in the second half to help the United States rally past Bosnia-Herzegovina 4-3 in a friendly to help extend their winning streak to 12 games.

"We came in (at halftime) and said, 'Listen we can beat this team,' " said Altidore, who helped the Americans earn their first come-from-behind win on European soil.   "We came in and said, 'We have more weapons, we're just as confident as they are. We just have to put more passes together and be more confident.' And you saw that in the second half."

The win could serve as a confidence booster for the Americans with World Cup qualifying less than a month away.
