JOZY BACK!

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Still recovering from an injury that has sidelined him for all but one substitute appearance for Toronto FC this season in Major League Soccer, Jozy Altidore was called up by Jurgen Klinsmann for the United States, because he's desperate for anyone that can play forward. Altidore can do that.

Clint Dempsey dribbled into the box but found himself with absolutely nowhere to go and Colombia's goalkeeper in his face. A poor touch/pass found it's way into the path of Altidore, and the forward smashed it into the top corner to make it 4-0 and leave Guatemalans sad.

The goal moves Altidore up into a tie with Eric Wynalda for third place on US Soccer's all-time scoring list. At only 26 years old, Altidore will target passing Landon Donvan who sits in first place. Altidore is 22 goals behind Donovan. Will he pass the legend?
