World Cup Soccer

American striker Jozy Altidore, as expected, will miss Sunday's World Cup
match against Portugal because of a left hamstring strain. Altidore was hurt
during the first half of the opener against Ghana on Monday and had to be
carried off the field on a stretcher. The severity of the injury was not
disclosed by U.S. Soccer and there was no determination if Altidore would be
able to return for the final round-robin match against Germany on June 26.

Thursday's World Cup slate opened with Colombia beating Ivory Coast 2-1 to
move atop Group C and continued with Uruguay edging England 2-1 in a match
between Group D teams desperate for a win. England fell to Italy in its first
match and Uruguay lost to Costa Rica in a shocker, leaving both teams
vulnerable in the group. Star striker Luis Suarez returned for Uruguay less
than a month after having knee surgery and scored twice, and Wayne Rooney had
the England goal, his first at a World Cup. Greece and Japan played to a
scoreless draw in the final match of the day.
