Haitian-American Jozy Altidore injured his hamstring Playing Ghana

The Haitian-American we all have been expecting to shine in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil may be out for the rest of the games.


Just in the 23rd minute of his first game in the 2014 World Cup, Jozy Altidore was obligated to come out. Sadly enough, his brief apparition might have been just that.

He pulled his left hamstring as he was attempting to run with a pass received from midfielder Michael Bradley.

Hamstring injuries are common in athletes. a pulled hamstring is no other than an excessive stretch or tear of muscle fibers and related tissues. During gait, the hamstrings undergo a complex process which makes it very vulnerable to frequent injuries. It must contract concentrically during the end of the stance phase in order to bend the knee and allow the foot to clear the ground. Also, at the end of the swing phase the hamstrings needs to contract while applying a braking moment to knee extension.
