Making the Case: Jozy Altidore, 2016 Male Player of the Year

No American player put together a more efficient campaign than Jozy Altidore in 2016.

The veteran forward scored a team-leading six goals, including four in World Cup Qualifying, in 10 appearances in his 10th year for the U.S. Men’s National Team and notched an impressive 10 goals in 16 starts and 23 appearances for M.L.S. Cup finalist Toronto FC.

Were it not for a recurring hamstring injury which forced him to miss the start of the M.L.S. season and the Copa America Centenario, Altidore could be a lock for the 2016 U.S. Soccer Male Player of the Year award.

Altidore entered 2016 primed for a big year, reporting to January camp a week earlier than expected to prepare his mind and body for a busy campaign with club and country. With two goals in two early friendlies, including an 89th minute game-winning header against Canada, the 27-year-old U.S. veteran made an early splash.

Just as Altidore was preparing to kick off his second season with Toronto FC, an all-to-familiar hamstring injury sidelined him for the team’s first two games of the season. After making his club season debut on March 20, he proved fit enough to earn a spot on the USA roster for a pair of important World Cup qualifiers against Guatemala, scoring in the latter.

On May 14, Altidore strained his hamstring during a match against Vancouver, keeping him out of action for club and country for more than two months. Toronto handled his return with caution, but he quickly returned to form, scoring twice in his second match back.

Altidore kicked off a four-game scoring streak on August 6 to earn a spot on the U.S. roster for a set of pivotal World Cup qualifiers against St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago, in which he scored a combined three goals.

He finished his club season with five goals in his last seven matches to push him into double digits and tied for 17th in the league, despite missing 11 regular season games.

Of late, Altidore made M.L.S. history, becoming the first player to score in five consecutive playoff games. This Saturday evening, Altidore and the Eastern Conference Champion Reds will take on Seattle Sounders FC in the M.L.S. Cup at 8 p.m. ET on FOX and UniMas.
