Salute to Jozy Altidore: American Overseas Player of the Week

This week, four Americans (all members of the USMNT) played in big games in the Premier League. Landon Donovan and Tim Howard of Everton played a part in their team's loss to Liverpool. Howard didn't get in front of Liverpool's Dirk Kuyt on a corner kick. Kuyt planted himself feet from Howard, who should have stepped in front of Kuyt but ultimately failed to take care of the threat and conceded the goal. Donovan was largely ineffective this game, but had flashes of brilliance when he cut through two defenders to put a nice cross into the box, where absolutely no one in blue was available to receive it.

Aston Villa drew 0-0 with Tottenham Hotspur. It was a boring game. Villa's goalkeeper is Brad Friedel kept a clean sheet with his highlight coming near the end of the first half when Spur's Peter Crouch headed a free-kick to his teammate, Ledley King, whose shot headed for the upper left corner of the goal. Friedel managed to flick a sure goal away from the net. Friedel's teammates accounted for 17 blocked shots.

However, the Overseas American Player of the Week is Jozy Altidore, who helped Hull City to a 2 - 1 win over Manchester City by scoring his first Premier League goal.

Well done, Jozy. Hopefully this is the first of many more goals to come.

  1. I agree that Altidore is definitely deserving of our illustrious award. His goal is somewhat overshadowed by Hull City's second goal by Boateng. That shot is a rocket. Just a beauty. The other thing that stands out about the game is the fact that Man City lost to Hull. It's just one game, but that's a game Man City needs to win.
