Who Said Americans Weren’t Good At ‘Soccer’?

Not bad from the American

On Wednesday night, Christian Eriksen’s Ajax side hosted AZ Alkmaar in a KNVB cup tie.

The away side ran out the victors surprisingly enough, getting 3 away goals against Holland’s most decorated club.

But in the 93rd minute a sheer moment of class was produced from United States international Jozy Altidore, who rounded off an emphatic 3-0 thumping of their opponents with a sublime lobbed effort over the powerless Ajax ‘keeper.

This goal has brought Altidore level with Tottenham attacker Clint Dempsey’s record of 23 goals in last season, and there is surely much more to come from the carefree-scoring American who is running riot in the Eredivisie.

It doesn’t get much better than this. 40 yards out, just pure instinct from the powerful striker.
