USA teammates Altidore and Oguchi in Twitter war of words

USA national teammates Jozy Altidore and Oguchi Onyewu recently exchanged words via Twitter regarding their hometown MLS clubs.

Luckily though, the banter was tongue-in-cheek and ended in a truce after AZ Alkmaar's Altidore urged former club New York Red Bulls to beat Sporting Lisbon defender Onyewu's home outfit DC United.

Altidore wrote: "RBNY must beat DC scum today! #Rivalry," to which Onyewu replied: "not sure how I feel about u bad talking my city like that!! Don't make me come over there and whoop that azz!"

Altidore then backed down from his initial slur: "haha my bad," before Onyewu again replied: "apology accepted! Just don't let it happen again! Hahaha"
