SALVADOR, BRAZIL -

Jozy Altidore has been cleared to play for Team USA on Tuesday against Belgium, but how much he will actually play remains a question.

"It's difficult to say how many minutes," said head coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

Altidore injured his left hamstring back on June 16th in the U.S. win over Ghana in the first match of the World Cup. He did not play the next two games against Portugal and Germany.

The U.S. plays Belgium on Tuesday afternoon at 4 PM. The Jacksonville Armada will host a World Cup watch party at Blackfinn in St. Johns Town Center.
