MOST COMMENTED

U.S. national team striker Jozy Altidore will be in the Sunderland squad for the club’s Premier League opener at West Brom on Saturday, manager Gus Poyet said on Tuesday. Altidore, 24, suffered a hamstring injury during the USA’s opening World Cup game against Ghana in June, and had been out of action until making his comeback as a second-half sub in the Black Cats’ 2-0 win against Udinese on Saturday.

"Jozy is coming along well," Poyet told the club's official Web site. "We were thinking he could feature for 45 to 30 minutes [against Udinese], the idea was to get him to play a part in case we need him in any games. I'm sure he will work a little bit more this week and a full week of proper training will help him be part of the squad for [Saturday]."

Altidore scored just one goal in 31 Premier League appearances last season. Read the original story...
