List of international goals scored by Jozy Altidore
Jozy Altidore is a professional soccer player who has represented the United States in international competition since 2007. As of October 10, 2017[update], Altidore has appeared 110 times for the national team and scored 41 goals. He is the third all-time male top scorer for the United States, behind Landon Donovan's 57 goals, and Clint Dempsey's 57 goals.
Altidore made his full international debut on November 17, 2007 in a friendly game away to South Africa. On February 7, 2008 he scored his first international goal by heading home a cross from Drew Moor in a friendly match against Mexico in Houston, Texas. On March 28, 2009, Altidore scored his first away goal in World Cup Qualifying in the 2–2 draw with El Salvador. On April 1, 2009, Altidore scored three goals in a 3–0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago, making Altidore the youngest American to score a hat-trick in an international game. On June 24, 2009, Altidore scored in the semi-final of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup against Spain, turning club teammate Joan Capdevilla to get a clear shot on Iker Casillas' goal. The U.S. went on to defeat the Spanish team, 2–0.
Altidore started at striker in all four of the United States' games in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, garnering only one assist with no goals scored. On June 2, 2013, Altidore ended an almost two-year scoring drought by sinking the first goal in an international friendly against Germany. He subsequently scored in his next two international games against Jamaica and Panama, marking the first time that he has scored in three consecutive international games. Altidore then went on to score in a fourth consecutive game against Honduras in a World Cup Qualification match on June 18. Scoring in four consecutive matches tied Altidore all-time for most consecutive games with a goal by any USMNT player, joining a select group of players that includes Landon Donovan, Eddie Johnson, Erik Wynalda, and William Lubbe.
On August 14, 2013, Altidore scored a hat-trick in the United States' 4–3 comeback win over Bosnia and Herzegovina, notably scoring from a free kick just outside the box with a curling effort. Altidore's three goals and an assist stretched his consecutive game scoring streak to 5 games, the most in U.S. national team history. On June 7, 2014, Altidore broke his goal-scoring drought with two goals against Nigeria, the defending Africa Cup of Nations champions.
On June 16, 2014, in the United States' opening 2014 FIFA World Cup match against Ghana, Altidore injured a hamstring and had to be carried from the field.
Altidore became the 17th American to reach 100 international caps on January 29, 2017 when he started in a goalless draw against Serbia. Only Landon Donovan had reached the milestone at a younger age than his 27 years.
