Sunderland striker Jozy Altidore scores twice for USA v Nigeria, jokes abound

It is fair to say, despite the fact Sunderland stayed up, that Jozy Altidore had another poor season in English football.

Altidore has a decent goal scoring record for the USA national team but in the Premier League struggled for goals at Sunderland and previously with Hull.

Before Saturday night, Altidore’s last goal came against Chelsea in a 4-3 defeat in early December.

And, it is fair to say Altidore was hardly banging in the goals before that game, notching just one Premier League goal all season.

So, Altidore’s brace, which can be seen on the videos above, was greeted with amusement by Sunderland fans, who will surely hope their USA front man gets his mojo back for the 2014/205 Premier League season.

Or, perhaps Gus Poyet will look to offload Altidore on the back of a fine World Cup in Brazil?
