The United States international striker Jozy Altidore has said that he is not concerned about the lack of selection into the national team squad in recent matches. Jozy Altidore was regarded as one of the young and bright talents for the national team only a few years ago. However, many failed spells at major clubs have resulted in the striker falling out favour with the current national team manager – Jurgen Klinsmann. However, he has been one of the best strikers since moving to the Dutch club AZ Alkmaar. He has already scored 11 goals in the season, which have made everyone take notice of the striker.
Recently, the Dutch club revealed that their matches have been watched by a number of scouts from big clubs like Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and Real Madrid. Even though the overall results have not been good, the form of the striker Jozy Altidore has been enough to convince them to come and watch AZ Alkmaar matches. Despite this good run of form, Jozy Altidore still continues to be looked down by the manager for the national team selection. The striker, however, has said that he is not worried. The United States will be playing in a friendly match against Russia, but he is once again expected to miss this encounter.
“I’m not losing any sleep over it. I obviously love playing for my country, which is a dream of mine. But I’m focusing on just getting better and trying to score goals. I can’t worry about things that are out of my control,” said the striker in a recent interview given to the CNN. His agent has also revealed that his client is not looking for a move away from the club at this stage because he feels extremely happy at AZ Alkmaar.
