U.S. forward Jozy Altidore assisted both goals during AZ Alkmaar’s 2-0 win against Udinese on Thursday.
U.S. Men’s National Team forward Jozy Altidore has continued his offensive production, this time assisting both goals during AZ Alkmaar’s 2-0 victory against Udinese in Europa League play on Thursday.
Altidore assisted AZ midfielder Maarten Martens’ 63rd-minute goal, crossing the ball in from the right side. It was deflected by a Udinese defender, but not enough to put the pass out of harm’s way as Martens headed it home for the 1-0 lead.
Then in the 84th minute, Altidore once again provided the cross from the right just outside the box – a rolling ball in which teammate Brett Holman looked like he wanted to shoot, but instead the ball scooted by him, where Erik Falkenburg converged for the tally and the two-goal cushion.
In other Europa League action, U.S. defender Steve Cherundolo wore the captain’s armband for Hannover 96 as his team played Standard Liege to a 2-1 draw.
U.S. midfielder Jermaine Jones and his Schalke 04 side dropped a 1-0 decision to FC Twente.
