NYT: Jozy Altidore and Life in the Fast Lane

Jozy Altidore will be wearing the same new, flashy, lightweight soccer cleats, his in garish yellow, as Lionel Messi and David Villa in next month’s World Cup. He has joined a worldwide advertising campaign for Adidas with two of the game’s big stars. It is fast company.

“I’m faster than Villa,” Altidore said with his signature Cheshire cat smile last week, days before reporting to the United States national team’s World Cup training camp in Princeton, N.J. He was referring to the fleet Spanish striker who is about to join Barcelona and play in the World Cup in South Africa where Altidore, 20, will also be preening for the cameras and a bevy of European scouts after a his one season in England ended on a sore note.
