Jozy Altidore won't play on Sunday against Portugal after straining his left hamstring against Ghana, the team confirmed. Also center back Matt Besler, who left the Ghana match at halftime with soreness in his hamstring, is healthy and should start against Portugal. News first leaked Thursday morning as a few players confirmed suspicions that Altidore's injury would indeed keep him out. Altidore injured his left hamstring chasing down a pass from Michael Bradley just 20 minutes into the US's opening-match win over Ghana.
