Jozy Altidore didn’t waste any time getting off to a great start to 2013, scoring a hat-trick for AZ Alkmaar in his first match of the new year, and as the U.S. Men’s National team draws closer to World Cup qualifying, Altidore figures to play a key role in the U.S. team’s qualifying campaign.
Altidore joined us on the latest episode of The SBI Podcast and he touches on a wide range of topics. He discusses his success in the Netherlands, his past experiences in the CONCACAF Hex, his memories of the MLS Draft, his thoughts on Mike Petke’s hiring as New York Red Bulls head coach and much more.
SBI Podcast co-host Garrett Cleverly and I also discusses a variety of topics on the American soccer scene, including the Red Bulls coaching hire, Real Salt Lake’s ownership change, the U.S. Men’s National team camp and even a sneak peak at my recent look at the 2014 MLS Draft talent.
You can listen to the show here, and you can also find The SBI Podcast on iTunes, as well as via the show’s RSS feed.
