Altidore's Sunderland survives in miracle finish

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Jozy Altidore's Sunderland defeated West Bromwich Albion, 2-0, in their English Premier League makeup game on Wednesday, capping a remarkable streak of five games where the Black Cats went from seven points in the relegation zone to survival with a game to spare. But Altidore, who missed from six yards on a play called offside, punctuated a frustrating season that has seen him score just one EPL goal in 30 games and lose his starting job.

The Black Cats looked to be dead when they fell at Tottenham, 5-1, prompting their manager, Gus Poyet, to say they needed a miracle to stay in the EPL. But they'll be staying up thanks a draw at Manchester City -- after conceding a last-minute goal -- and victories at Chelsea and Manchester United and at home against Cardiff City and West Brom. Altidore played just 78 minutes during the five-game run.

The loss to Tottenham completed a string of eight games with one point -- the same streak Sunderland began the season with.

    Poor Jozy is getting hardly any playing time and his names grabs the headline topic; curious?
