Americans Abroad: Altidore’s run continues

Jozy Altidore’s dream season continued last week as he scored two goals for AZ Alkmaar. First, on Thursday, Altidore converted a late penalty kick to help AZ to a 4-1 Dutch Cup victory over SC Veendam. The U.S. international’s strike beat the keeper as he placed it in the top left corner of the net.

On Sunday, Altidore scored AZ’s second goal as the club played a wild game against RKC Waalwijk. The goal itself was splendid as Altidore outmaneuvered several defenders before slotting one past the keeper. The final score was 3-3 and despite Alkmaar’s mid-table position, Altidore has been a revelation thus far. His eight Eredivisie goals are a league best and his nine goals in all competitions put him on pace for a spectacular season.
