Injured Jozy Altidore to miss U.S. Nations League match against Canada

Forward Jozy Altidore is hurt again and will miss the United States’ Nations League games against Cuba and Canada.

Altidore, who turns 30 next month, left Toronto FC’s regular-season finale on Sunday.

The U.S. Soccer Federation did not announce the nature of the injury in its announcement Tuesday, saying it was up to Toronto.

Altidore was taken down by a Columbus Crew SC opponent just outside the penalty box at BMO Field in Toronto and exited gingerly in the 70th minute.

Altidore was limited to 13 regular-season Major League Soccer matches in 2018 and 21 this year because of injuries.

The Americans play Cuba on Friday at Washington, D.C., and Canada on Oct. 15. They host Canada on Nov. 15 at Orlando, Fla., and play Cuba four days later at George Town, Cayman Islands.
