Pride of Boca, Jozy Altidore Helps U.S. to Win of Draw in World Cup Qualifying Match

That's Boca Raton native and American soccer star Jozy Altidore in an interview he gave late last night to ESPN after the U.S. earned a 2-2 tie against Costa Rica. In doing so, the Americans won the draw, after having qualified earlier for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The match came after Altidore's close friend and teammate, Charlie Davies, was badly injured in a one-car accident early Tuesday morning near Washington, D.C. The team also had to play a man down during the second half after its best defensive player, Oguchi Onyewu, went down with a knee injury.
