Altidore converted the chance from 12 yards out by firing home a high shot that beat Veendam goalkeeper Theo Timmermans in the game that secured advancement in the tournament.

The goal gave Altidore eight across all competitions this season, further improving his chances of topping the career-best 19 goals he scored during the 2011-2012 campaign.
