PRETORIA, South Africa -- Forward Jozy Altidore has resumed full training with the U.S. World Cup team, six days after spraining his right ankle during practice.

"I feel great. The ankle feels fine," Altidore said in comments relayed by the U.S. Soccer Federation after Tuesday's practice. "It's a little sore, but I had no issues participating in all the exercises today. I'm happy to be part of the group again."

Altidore, who has nine goals in 25 international appearances, didn't play in Saturday's 3-1 exhibition win over Australia. The U.S. plays its World Cup opener Saturday against England.
