Jozy Altidore Hot-Wires New Season with Two Goals Against Ajax

U.S. midfielder Jozy Altidore looks like a grown-ass man in these highlights from AZ Alkmaar’s season opener against defending Eredivisie champs Ajax Amsterdam. The 22-year-old New Jersey native scored both of his team’s goals in the 2-2 draw:

Have you ever inadvertently bumped into one of those concrete planters on a city sidewalk? Not a lot of give on those, is there? You tend to get bounced off rudely—kind of like what happened to the defender who challenged Altidore in the box on that first goal.

On the second, Altidore gets it going with a sweet backheel and then finishes high to the near post—a goal-scorer’s, whatever-it-takes kind of finish.

Can’t wait to see this guy back in the U.S. shirt this fall.
