Andrija Novakovich, tub thumper

Apparently, the Fortuna Sittard loan forward loves playing at De Kuip. He notched an assist there during a good December outing, and now he's become just the fourth American to score against F-word in their vaunted house (joining DaMarcus Beasley, Aron Jóhannsson and Peter Vermes).

This clever early second half strike temporarily tied this KNVB Cup quarterfinal tilt, but alas, the kakkerlakken scored three late goals to run away with it.
