Time to reset the Altidore Goal Watch meter back to zero. The US striker finally broke through to net his first goal in over twenty contests as Hull took down Manchester City, 2-1.

Big Jeezy had it going on early today drawing two yellow cards on the City defense in the first 12 minutes of the contest. And he didn’t let up in a strong 66-minute performance.

In the 31st, Jozy calmly deposited a lay-off pass from Jan VofH in the back right corner of the net from the top of the 18 for his first EPL goal.

Altidore was then swarmed by his teammates and beaten about the head and chest in celebration.

The striker’s last goal celebration took place way back on September 5, 2009 versus El Salvador.

Little did anyone know at the time that we wouldn’t see Jozy hit the scoresheet under the “G” category for 154 more days. Nor did we think that his puzzling disallowed goal in the second half of that contest would be so foreboding.

May this be the first of many, many more in 2010, Jozy!

Here is  Altidore talking about the match on BBC Sport.
