Jozy Altidore: On target for USA

Jurgen Klinsmann's side were forced to work hard in Utah to claim their fourth straight victory and it was not until the 73rd minute that Altidore scored a left-footed strike at the far post courtesy of Fabian Johnson's assist.

It was Altidore's fourth goal in the six-team final round, and it put America on 13 points, two clear of Costa Rica, who beat Panama 2-0.

Panama midfielder Armando Cooper hit the bar with a long-distance effort two minutes before the break.

But the Ticos took the lead quickly in the second period, as Bryan Ruiz netted a free-kick in the 49th minute, before Celso Borges widened the gap from outside the box two minutes later.

Costa Rica sit three points clear of Mexico, who occupy the third and final qualification spot and are themselves one ahead of Honduras, after six games.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
