Striker nets twice in US win.

Black Cats front man Jozy Altidore scored a goal in either half to seal victory for the US national team over Nigeria on Saturday night.

The 2-1 win was the team’s final game before they head to Brazil for this summer’s World Cup competition.

That result sees USA, who are in the same group as Germany, Portugal and Ghana, head into the competition on the back of three straight friendly wins.

Chelsea's Victor Moses scored a consolation goal from the penalty spot for Nigeria.
