I think Altidore is a talent, you have to remember he is still only 19. He is a great athlete and has so much pace, and heart to his game. He does need a lot of work but he is so direct. Very fast, big, strong and he has a good shot on him. Just needs a lot of technical and tactical work.If it's not in life in general, nor in sport, then wtf you mean by 3rd world? I got offended by that.
And Altidore is total garbage. I seen him against Costa Rica and v. Honduras.
It's the stupid Nike and Adidas soccer commercials and ads showing the USA NT games on FSC with Jozy Altidore everywhere that makes it look like he's some real talent. There's a reason not only did he not play in Villareal, but neither is he playing in Spanish 2nd league Xerxez. Massively overrated player. Freddy Adu #2. Whatever player the Americans call "World Class", they are average or below average. When they call him "super human" or "legend", only then are they average to very good.
Even though the American commentators called Donovan a soccer legend (?) but I'll let that slide just because he tried in Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich (although he failed in both places (I'll let that slide as well, just because I'm a nice guy)).
Dempsey and Bradley piss all over the other American players.
