Hardly shocking news, but Aron Jóhannsson scored the insurance tally as defending champs AZ moved on to the KNVB Cup semis with a 2-0 win at Roda JC. The U.S. forward bagged his 20th across all competition for the campaign in the 59th minute. Counting the work of Jozy Altidore last season, Americans have now accounted for at least one goal in nine straight AZ domestic cup matches, with 14 all tolled in that span.
UPDATE: You gotta love the Arabic announcer's stick-to-it-iveness in pronouncing AJ's last name. Good finish by both player and mic man.
