Stuff you most likely wouldn't notice
Not only did Jozy Altidore earn the Man of the Match prize at Ajax this weekend, but he was also named Player of the Day by leading Dutch publication Voetbal International yesterday. And just so you know, this feature spot is not only limited to Eredivisie and Oranje players, anyone in the world is eligible for the honor.
Plus, if you're wondering: He was one of four players to hit two goals on opening day, but the only striker to do so. Golden Boot race, anyone?
