Altidore strikes twice for U.S. in win over Nigeria

(Reuters) - Jozy Altidore scored twice as the United States completed their World Cup preparations with a 2-1 win over Nigeria at EverBank Field in Jacksonville on Saturday.

Altidore ended his six-month goal drought for club and country with a goal in each half to send the U.S. to Brazil on the back of three successive friendly victories.

Nigeria forward Victor Moses spoiled Tim Howard’s hopes of a clean sheet in his 100th international appearance with a late consolation from the penalty spot.

Altidore's opener in the 32nd minute was a simple tap-in after good work from Fabian Johnson but his second was a fine strike as he took down a diagonal ball from Michael Bradley, cut inside and fired in at the near post.
