Jozy Altidore (USA)

Most people believe that if the U.S. is going to win — even just a few games — in the World Cup, it is going to take a miracle. They just may have gotten one, in striker and FC Sunderland player Jozy Altidore. After a serious drought where he didn’t score a single goal since December, the 24-year-old made two this month against Nigeria, in the U.S.’s last game before boarding the plane for Brazil. Altidore, who is from Livingston, New Jersey, is physically stronger and harder to stop than a lot of strikers, meaning he could be the winning touch for the U.S. (Photo: Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)
