The severity of Altidore's injury is unclear, and probably will remain so why tip off Portugal in advance? but coach Jurgen Klinsmann remained optimistic.
When asked about how difficult it is to come back quickly from such an injury, Altidore tried to sound upbeat.
Without Altidore, the team's only true target forward, the Americans will have to alter their attack.
"We are full of hope that he comes back in this tournament, and that's what we are going to work on every day," Klinsmann said Tuesday. "We still have hope that Jozy will come back. How quickly? That is down to his healing process."
The likely solution is Aron Johannsson, who replaced Altidore. He had middling results in his 67 minutes against Ghana. As the team struggled for possession time, Johannsson barely saw the ball. But his through pass to Fabian Johnson set up the corner kick that resulted in John Brooks' winning goal. striker offers. The 23 year old scored 26 goals for the Dutch club AZ Alkmaar this past season.
Hamstring injuries don't heal quickly, as Altidore knows from experience. In 2011, he missed the Gold Cup semifinals and final with a left hamstring injury. He said Monday's injury felt similar to that one.
Another option would be Chris Wondolowski, who has a knack for being in the right place at the right time.
"He's greedy in a very good way," goalkeeper Tim Howard said. "He likes his goals."
"I don't want to go too deep into details, because obviously we want Portugal to guess a little bit as well, but you know when one of your key players is not available, does it change certain things? Absolutely it does. Jozy is a very strong key player in our group," Klinsmann said. "We'll still field 11, you know; we're not Christian Louboutin Mens Tuxedo Shoes

"I've seen him a play a lot in Europe," two time World Cup veteran Brian McBride said. "He's got great movement, loves to have the ball at his feet but also can run on the ball in space. He's a smart player, technically sound and loves to get in the box."
His journeyman story is compelling as well. Throughout his career, Wondolowski, 31, piled up goals in Major League Soccer, but was continually overlooked by national team coaches. team last summer, his name was misspelled Wondowlowski on his jersey.
depth was tested (Monday) and it proved to be very good for us, and I think we have guys who can do the same job that Jozy can."
After Monday's 2 1 win, Altidore barely could walk. He limped as he left the stadium and held on to a metal railing as he made his way to the team bus. Altidore's chances of playing against Portugal or Germany on June 22 seem doubtful.
After an exhausting and physical game Monday, the team will take Wednesday off to recover and spend time with their families. Klinsmann said defender Matt Besler, who sat out the second half with a sore hamstring, and captain Clint Dempsey, who Christian Louboutin Mens Spikes
suffered a broken nose, will play against Portugal.
"I'm up for it. It's a once in a lifetime to be in a World Cup and hopefully I can get better and play, and if not we have great guys off the bench," he said.
