Notes: Forward ... 24 years old ... 6-foot-1 ... 158 lbs ... First played for USMNT in 2007 ... Plays for Sunderland (Premier League). Outlook: Altidore (center) had a miserable year with Sunderland, so an optimist could say he has been saving his goals for the World Cup. Altidore is a prolific striker for America, with 21 goals in 67 appearances for the national team. He started all four of the United States' games in the 2010 World Cup and is likely to lead the line in Brazil, though if the goal-scoring form of Chris Wondolowski and Aron Johannsson continues without Altidore finding the net, a shock benching isn't outside the realm of possibility.
