Jozy Altidore Fit to Play Against Belgium – But Should He?

Is Jurgen Klinsmann seriously thinking of playing Jozy Altidore against Belgium, or is this just a rouse?

I don’t understand how someone with even a minor hamstring tear can have a great game playing at full speed. If Klinsmann were to use Altidore late in the game (and let’s be honest, that would be the only way he could), extra time would mean that the US could go down a man if he get’s hurt again and they are out of subs.

The only way I see him being used is in a hell-mary pass in the last part of the game if the US is down a goal and have no other options.

What do you think?
