Klinsmann Cautious On Altidore's Return; World Cup Scores

Klinsmann cautious on Altidore's return
(SALVADOR, BRAZIL) - U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said on Monday that forward Jozy Altidore had been with the team "two, three days" but added that it's difficult to say how many minutes are in him. Altidore, who has been sidelined with a strained hamstring since the United States' 2-1 win over Ghana on June 16, joined the U.S. team on Monday for a workout in Salvador and is fit and ready to go, according to U.S. Soccer. Aron Johannsson replaced Altidore against Ghana, and Klinsmann switched from a 4-4-2 formation to a 4-5-1 against Portugal and Germany. Any decision to play Altidore carries with it considerable risk. If the U.S. striker was to suffer a recurrence of the injury, Klinsmann would have to use one of his three substitutes, which would limit his tactical options later in the match, especially if Altidore comes on as a substitute himself. Yet there is also the possibility that this is just a ploy by Klinsmann to hide his true intentions. The word "available" could mean starting Altidore with the idea of playing him a predetermined number of minutes, using him as a substitute, or having him on the bench with no intention of playing him at all.
