Red Right 88

In Cleveland, hope dies last

Altidore is back, but can he make a difference against Belgium?

altidoreThe USA received some good news on Monday, as forward Jozy Altidore has been cleared to play against Belgium in today’s round-of-16 game against Belgium.

The question is how much will Altidore play, if he plays at all?

USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann faces a tough decision on how to work Altidore back into the lineup. Does he start him and risk having to use an early substitute if Altidore can’t go? Does he bring Altidore off the bench if things are not going well? Or does he save him, not wanting to risk further injury, knowing that there may not be a next game without Altidore?

We start figuring out what this means in our latest post at World Soccer Talk.
