[VIDEO PICK: Interview] Jozy Altidore takes Julie Foudy for a stroll through the cobbled streets he calls home in the Netherlands during an engaging interview for ESPN's Outside the Lines series.

Depending upon who you ask, and when you asked them, Altidore is a washed up former phenom not good enough to play for the USA. (or any other Concacaf team), a Haitian-American born in New Jersey currently breaking scoring records while playing in his fifth country as a pro, America’s future up front, or all of the above.

The confusion isn’t surprising, as Jozy’s epic scoring drought with the USA ended abruptly with two sweet opening goals in a pair of victories over the last 10 days. Goals that seem a bit pedestrian after Altidore’s spectacular 2012-13 highlight reel at AZ Alkmaar.

Jozy looks quite comfortable ambling around Alkmaar with Foudy, a woman holding 213 more appearances with the USA than Jozy’s 58, while sharing his thoughts on racist taunting, winning a Dutch Cup with AZ, and the 23-year-old American joins Julie in wondering out loud if he is beginning to age like a fine Dutch cheese ...
