Jozy Altidore Out Against Germany
(SAO PAULO) -- United States forward Jozy Altidore will miss his second straight game in the World Cup with a left hamstring injury.
Altidore will be out for the final game of round one against Germany on Thursday.
"Jozy is recovering really well," U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. "He's doing a tremendous job. Our medical staff is on top of it. This game [against Germany] comes still too early for him, but we're working on him."
"We're getting him back in this tournament, as we said. So once this game is done -- hopefully successfully -- we'll have a good chance to have him back then in the team," he continued.
Altidore was injured during the first half of the U.S.' 2-1 victory over Ghana in their first game of the tournament.
Germany is ahead of the U.S. in Group G by goal differential.
The U.S. can still advance with a draw or a win, or with a draw between Portugal and Ghana.
