Altidore scores for Villarreal in exhibition

Jozy Altidore scored a tying goal in the 79th minute, giving
Villarreal a 2-2 exhibition draw against Turkey’s Besiktas on
Sunday.

The 20-year-old American forward, who spent last season on loan
from Villarreal to England’s Hull, scored with a right-footed
volley from 6 yards off a cross.

Altidore, a starter for the U.S. World Cup team, is on the
American roster for Tuesday’s exhibition against Brazil at the New
Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Defender Carlos Marchena, a member of Spain’s World Cup
champions, played his first match for Villarreal after transferring
from Valencia.
