The long wait is over.
After going 1,205 minutes without a goal in the English Premier League, Jozy Altidore scored his first EPL goal of the season for Sunderland in the 14th minute on Wednesday against Chelsea. Altidore collected a pass from teammate Jack Colback in the box, spun to his right, and fired low past Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech with a left-footed shot to level the scoreline.
Altidore’s only previous goal for Sunderland came in a League Cup match in late August against Milton Keynes Dons. The U.S. Men’s National Team star moved to the English club last July from AZ Alkmaar in Holland for an undisclosed amount.
Here’s video of Altidore’s goal:
