Though he might be in for only a few minutes

Team USA forward Jozy Altidore might play in Tuesday’s game against Belgium after suffering from a hamstring strain.

Altidore, 24, hurt his hamstring during the USA’s World Cup win against Ghana. He had to sit out the following games against Portugal and Germany, but he has been warming up on his own.

It’s unclear exactly how much playing time Altidore will have, the Associated Press reports, with U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann saying “it’s now difficult to say how many minutes.”

“Just having him with us tomorrow is huge,” Klinsmann added.
