A brace from Altidore was good for a point at the ArenA. He had the equalizer and the go-ahead in the 48th and 50th minutes to give the Cheese Farmers an opening-day draw against the defending champs.

His first came after he collected a long diagonal ball down the left, beat Toby Alderweireld off the dribble, held off Gregory Van Der Wiel and shelfed his shot from the six like it was his job.

His second came from some slick combination play. Side-heeling a one-two before, Altidore then drove into the box and beat Kenneth Vermeer high to the near post.
