Altidore's hat trick leads US to 4-3 win vs Bosnia

Jozy Altidore scored a second-half hat trick to lead an impressive comeback for the United States, which rallied from two goals down Wednesday to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 4-3 in a friendly in Sarajevo and extend its record winning streak to 12 games.

Eddie Johnson had the other goal for the Americans, who have the world's longest active winning streak.

That streak appeared to be in jeopardy when the Americans fell behind 2-0 before halftime. But Altidore set up Johnson's goal in the 55th minute, then scored his own four minutes later. He added two more in the 84th and 86th minutes, setting off raucous celebrations for the U.S.

Edin Dzeko scored his second goal in the 90th minute.
