Jozy Altidore Scores A Hat Trick for USA Against Bosnia-Herzegovina [VIDEO]

US international and Sunderland striker Jozy Altidore scored a sensational hat trick Wednesday night to lift the US men’s national team to a 4-3 victory against Bosnia-Herzegovina in Sarajevo.

In the first meeting between the two sides, the US team had a poor defensive performance in the first half where they gave away two goals to the opponents. But incredibly, thanks to a wonderful touch by Altidore, the USA pulled a goal back after Altidore set up Eddie Johnson.

In the second half, it was all USA with Altidore adding a hat trick to his one assist. Edin Dzeko pulled one back near the final whistle for Bosnia-Herzegovina, but it was too late as the US men’s national team got a deserved victory in an impressive comeback.

For Altidore, this is exactly what the striker needs to help boost his confidence even more before Sunderlamd’s first game of the Premier League season on Saturday, which will be televised and available online via NBC Sports.
