The U.S. Men’s National Team didn’t create much in Wednesday’s friendly match with Denmark, but what they did create came from the feet of Jozy Altidore.
The Toronto FC forward provided a goal and an assist in Wednesday’s 3-2 loss to the Danes, earning recognition as SBI USMNT Man of the Match.
With Denmark dominating the early going, Altidore kick-started the U.S. in the 19th minute by bashing his way past a pair of Danish defenders before thumping a shot inside the near post. The U.S. was up against it once again in the second half until Altidore turned provider, sliding a pass to a cutting Aron Johannsson for the USMNT’s second goal of the day.
Altidore’s dominance atop the field earned the forward Wednesday’s honors ahead of Johannsson, Michael Bradley and John Brooks.
