Aron Johannsson recovered from the injury that kept him of AZ Alkmaar’s most recent match, and he came back in time to shine against a fellow American striker.
Johannsson delivered a 21st-minute header goal for AZ against Juan Agudelo and FC Utrecht on Saturday. AZ settled for a 1-1 draw against visiting Utrecht after an equalizing free kick in the second half from Utrecht’s Jens Toornstra.

Agudelo struggled to get involved in the attack for a Utrecht side that spent much of the match chasing the game.
The goal is Johannsson’s 14th Eredivisie goal of the season, and 22nd goal in all competitions for AZ.
