Altidore scores first EPL goal in Hull victory

From the early moments of Jozy Altidore's 18th English Premier League match, there were signs his first league goal for Hull City might come.

The U.S. national team striker looked dangerous from the opening moments, and drew yellow cards for both of Manchester City's centerbacks before delivering his first EPL goal to help Hull City post an impressive 2-1 victory against Manchester City.

Altidore ran onto a Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink pass in the 31st minute and slotted home a shot past Shay Given from 19 yards out to open the scoring vs. City.

Altidore's second goal for Hull (his first came in an August Carling Cup match), also helped Hull City climb out of the relegation zone and into 14th place.

If you missed the goal, here it is:
