Josmer Volmy " Jozy " Altidore (/ˈdʒoʊzi ˈæltɪdɔːr/ JOH-zee AL-ti-dor; born November 6, 1989) is an American professional soccer player who plays as a forward for Toronto FC and the United States national team.

Toronto went on to win the game 1-0, a victory that helped earn the team home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Coach Greg Vanney told reporters post-game that Altidore’s quad was “sore” and he would undergo an MRI to assess the severity of the issue and the timeline for his return. The organization confirmed the injury three days later, but the club could only say that it was doing everything possible to get Altidore back on the field as soon as possible.

The confirmation comes a day after Altidore was forced to withdraw from the United States men’s national team roster on Tuesday ahead of upcoming CONCACAF Nations Leagues games against Cuba and Canada. He will receive treatment and therapy in Toronto as the Reds prepare for their first-round playoff match against DC United on Oct. 19 at BMO Field.

Both Altidore and Vanney told TSN’s Kristian Jack they were optimistic the forward would be available to play in that match.

“I’m going to do everything I can to be ready for another special night at BMO Field,” Altidore told the broadcaster.

Altidore has 11 goals in 23 appearances for Toronto this season. He missed two games in August and September because of a “very mild quad strain.” He also dealt with a hamstring injury earlier in the season that kept him out for five starts.
