The United States Men National Soccer Team will be without forward Jozy Altidore for Sunday’s game against Portugal.

Altidore was carted off the field Monday during the USA’s 2-1 win over Ghana after he strained his left hamstring 21 minutes into the game.

Head Coach Jurgen Klinsmann said although Altidore will not play Sunday, the team hopes for his return later in the tournament.

Portugal is coming off a 4-0 loss to Germany and looked shaky at best in the opening match.
