Altidore boasts to Beckham

U.S. striker Jozy Altidore ran into David Beckham at a Los Angeles Lakers games and told the injured England star, who will miss the World Cup, what to expect from the Group C opening game between the USA and England.

"I saw Becks there and I had to go over and tell him what is going to happen in South Africa," Altidore said. "I made sure he knows how it’s going to be without him playing – USA 3, England 0. I was having fun with Becks and talking a bit of trash, and I forgot I was supposed to go to the locker room and meet Kobe [Bryant].”

“When you look at American sports like basketball and football the one thing you notice is the confidence,” Altidore said. “Guys like Kobe have that total belief in themselves that they are going to make the shot, win the game, get the job done, no questions asked. That is the kind of mentality that we want to have. It is not arrogance; it is about trusting yourself and your abilities.”
