Aron Johannsson continued his goal-scoring exploits for AZ Alkmaar on Tuesday with his latest strike, but his 21st goal of the season in all competitions came at a price.

The U.S. Men’s National Team striker left Tuesday’s 2-0 victory against Vitesse Arnhem at halftime with an apparent upper leg injury. Johannsson had a hand in both AZ goals, including his own 42nd minute strike, before being forced to leave the match at halftime.

The severity of the injury is unknown at the moment, but he actually suffered the injury before scoring his goal so that would suggest it isn’t a serious injury. The fact it is an upper leg injury, rather than anything involving the knee is certainly a positive.

Here is Johannsson’s goal:


What do you think of Johannsson’s goal-scoring exploits? How nervous are you at the possibility of the U.S. being without him? See him starting at the World Cup given his form in the Netherlands?
