U.S. Men’s National Team and Sunderland fans will be hoping that Jozy Altidore’s latest performance is a sign of things to come.

Altidore snapped a near 10-month long scoring drought at the club level, netting the opener in the 16th minute of the Black Cats’ Capital One Cup duel with Stoke City. Altidore struck when he pulled off a nice turn and fired a low shot from just outside the penalty area, giving him his first Sunderland goal since finding the back of net against Chelsea on Dec. 4, 2013.

Unfortunately for Altidore and the Black Cats, they went on to relinquish the lead at home and were bounced out of the tournament. The Potters scored on each side of halftime to rally to a 2-1 win.

What do you think of Altidore’s goal? Expect his confidence to rise now and for him to go on a tear?
