Altidore scores first Premier League goal in upset win

Jozy Altidore scored his first English Premier League goal today to help Hull to a 2-1 upset  win over Manchester City.

Altidore won multiple free kicks and looked dangerous throughout the match before pulling up lame with what looked to be a quad injury and leaving for a substitution in the 66th minute. The goal was the U.S. international’s first in league play. After Altidore’s injury, the pace of the game changed noticeably in Man City’s favor, but Hull held on. Good showing for the American.

I haven’t found the goal on YouTube, but you can view it here.
