If Jozy Altidore was an Englishman and not an American, how do you think the general view of him would differ? Would he still be viewed as a super prospect? A guy with the hopes of the soccer/football nation pinned to him as a future striker on the national team? Let's try to make sense of this. I'm going to assume, for simplicity's sake, that MLS is more or less around the same level of quality as the Coca-Cola Championship. As of now, Altidore has 8 goals & 4 assists in 17 league games this season (12 of them starts). That's just under a goal every two games. If Altidore was an Englishman, at age 17, and was producing those similar numbers halfway through the Coca-Cola Championship season for a mid-table team, do you think he'd be receiving similar hype? Would English fans and the English media be tabbing him as a future national team star? Is Altidore's level of productivity and his potential, at this age, good enough for England too?
