Jozy Altidore has trained on his own again, an indication the injured forward isn't likely to start in the United States' second-round World Cup game against Belgium next week.


Altidore hasn't played since straining his left hamstring in the opener against Ghana on June 16. He joined teammates Saturday to applaud equipment manager Jesse Bignami for his birthday, then broke off to jog around the fields at the Sao Paulo Futebol Clube training complex with fitness coach Masa Sakihana as the rest of the Americans warmed up.


In the knockout stage of consecutive World Cups for the first time, the U.S. plays Belgium on Tuesday night in the northeastern city of Salvador.
