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.

No matter how many years pass, few of us old enough to understand the scope of what happened on September 11, 2001 will ever forget those video images of planes flying through skyscrapers, which then crumbled into dust. Perhaps out of psychological necessity, we have distanced ourselves from the visceral emotions of that day.
