U.S.striker Jozy Altidore won't be available for the team's final group game against Germany on Thursday.

Altidore injured his left hamstring in the U.S.'s 2-1 win over Ghana last week. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said that there's a good chance Altidore will return for the knockout stages should the Americans qualify.



The U.S. and Germany each have four points heading into the final group match on Thursday, but Germany has the advantage on goal differential.

Klinsmann also said that U.S. center back Matt Besler will be ready to play Thursday after coming off at halftime against Portugal with hamstring tightness.
