Jozy Altidore Called Up To National Team

New York Red Bulls forward Jozy Altidore will be part of the 17-man U.S. national team roster that faces South Africa in Johannesburg Nov. 17, according to a statement by the club. The complete U.S. roster will be finalized following this weekend's matches in Europe and MLS with players reporting to camp on Nov. 12 in Johannesburg.

This is the first time that the 18-year-old has been called up to the senior side, but he has previously competed at the U.S. U-17 and U-20 levels and this summer took part in the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada.

Jozy is the first Red Bulls player to be capped by his national side since...I don't even know when. Anybody know?


  1. Perhaps Amando Guevara for Honduras. Angel is going to play for Columbia again, correct?

    Congrats to Jozy. For as much as Bob Bradley wants to show restraint with his young players and not put undue pressure on them, it won't be long before he'll find it difficult to keep Jozy off the field.
