2/8/2010: Jozy Altidore Scores First Goal; Salutes Haiti and the USA

US National team striker Jozy Altidore scored his first league goal for Hull City against Manchester City on Saturday, which helped secure a crucial 2-1 home win for the Tigers. There would be no better time than now for Jozy to go on a scoring run in the top flight, as the USA could really use his form; especially, with Charlie Davies unlikely to make a full comeback in time for the World Cup in June.

Here's a video of his goal, a deft touch to the right corner that beat Shay Given in the 31st minute:

During the goal celebration, Jozy, kissed an armband that had the USA and Haitian flags on it. If you want to help Haiti, here's a good link in general from the American Red Cross and also a Crew fan is working on donating soccer balls for children in Haiti, and that link could be found here.
