The dream start to the season just keeps getting better and better for Aron Johannsson.

Three days after scoring a hat-trick in an 120-minute performance in KNVB Cup, Johannson continued his recent run of good form with a spectacular game-winning goal in AZ Alkmaar’s 2-1 upset victory over league leaders PSV Eindhoven on Saturday. The 22-year-old U.S. Men’s National Team forward scored with a shot off a bounce that dipped over substitute Eindhoven goalkeeper Przemyslaw Tyton and into the back of the net in the second half.

The goal gives Johannsson five in league play and 10 across all competitions. It also puts him 22 back of the scoring record Jozy Altidore set last season for an American playing abroad with about eight months left to play in the season.

Here is the goal:

What do you think of Johannsson’s latest goal? Think he will come anywhere close to Altidore’s scoring record? Do you see him playing on a bigger club by this time next year?
