Altidore posts 2 goals, assist vs. Ajax

Jozy Altidore has not produced consistently for the U.S. national team but he remains in fine form for AZ Alkmaar. The American striker had two goals and a gorgeous assist in the final 20 minutes of a 3-0 Dutch Cup semifinal victory at Ajax on Wednesday, increasing his overall scoring haul to 23 goals in 30 appearances. He has 16 goals in 23 league matches and seven in five cup games. AZ, 13th in the Eredivisie, will visit 14th-place Waalkwijk on Sunday. In the May 9 cup final, AZ will play PSV Eindhoven.
