Altidore bags brace to lift AZ to victory, end drought

AZ Alkmaar snapped their seven-game winless run on Saturday, and unsurprisingly Jozy Altidore played a big role in making that happen.

Altidore ended his scoring drought and lifted AZ to victory by finding the back of the net twice in a 2-1 win over PEC Zwolle. Altidore scored his first goal in the second minute of the match and added the eventual winner with a tap-in finish in the 33rd, giving AZ their first win since Nov. 1.

The U.S. Men’s National Team forward’s brace gives him 11 goals in Eredivisie and 14 across all competitions this season. It also marked his fifth multi-goal match across all competitions and ended a dry spell for Altidore that dated back to Nov. 10.

Here are Altidore’s goals:
