Jozy Altidore will miss the United States' World Cup game against Germany on Thursday because of his strained left hamstring.


The forward was injured in the Americans' opening 2-1 win against Ghana on June 16 and didn't play in Sunday's 2-2 draw against Portugal.


U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said Tuesday that if the Americans qualify for the knockout stage, "we'll have a good chance to have him back again."


Germany has four points and leads Group G on goal difference over the U.S. Portugal and Ghana, who also play Thursday, have one point apiece.
