Watch: Jozy Altidore scores USA's late winner vs. Canada

Altidore's header off Ethan Finlay's perfect cross gave the USA a 1-0 win over Canada.

Jozy Altidore made it two late winners in two games for the U.S. men's national team.

Altidore's 89th-minute header off a cross from Ethan Finlay secured a 1-0 win for the U.S. over Canada Friday night, following Steve Birnbaum's 90th-minute header against Iceland last Sunday.

Altidore, who also scored vs. Iceland, had multiple chances throughout the game, but finally converted on his last one. Finlay, who had just entered the game as a substitute on the left wing, delivered a pinpoint cross to the edge of the six-yard box. Altidore had position on his defender and elevated to head the ball by Canada goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau to prevent the U.S. from settling for a third straight 0-0 draw with Canada.
