Two More for Altidore

Jozy Altidore seems to enjoy playing for AZ Alkmaar. The 21 year old striker has only been with the Dutch club for a little over a month, logging just 215 minutes, but he's already scored 5 times including a pair of goals in yesterday's 6-0 Europa League win against Aalesunds FK (Norway). With the win, AZ Alkmaar advances to the Group Stage of the tournament where they have drawn FC Metalist Kharkiv (Ukraine), Austria Vienna (Austria) and Malmo (Sweden). For the complete tournament draw, click here. Jozy's play hasn't gone unnoticed by new U.S. National Team coach Jurgen Klinsmann as Altidore has been added to the preliminary 24 man squad for upcoming exhibitions against Costa Rica (9/2) and at Belgium (9/6). It will be interesting to see if his performance in Europe will translate to newfound success with the National Team.
