After just two minutes, AZ striker Jozy Altidore has snapped a four-game drought by scoring the 1-0 opener at FC Zwolle. The U.S. ace outran the last defender for a stray long ball, got dumped trying to round the keeper and gathered himself in time to slot his 10th of the Eredivisie season (and 24th across all competition in 2012).
UPDATE: Not long after the half hour, Altidore bags his second of the night from a Beerens cross on the quick counter. Who had Jozy hat trick in the pool tonight... ?
