Jozy Altidore got his first start since December 18th for AZ and made the most out of it, earning Man of the Match honors for his 12th and 13th goals of the season across all competitions. This coming shortly after AZ’s manager proclaimed that Jozy had lost his starting role due to the lack of progress he had made this season. AZ’s boss further went on to explain that the club at this point in time played better with Charilson Benschop starting up front.

However with Benschop missing Sunday’s match vs. Heerenveen due to injury Jozy got the nod and in the 26th minute flawlessly executed a Robin van Persie-esque turnaround shot to put AZ ahead 1-0. Check out the goal and the amusing “Born in the USA” soundtrack played in celebration…

Jozy then registered his second of the match to once again put AZ in front. The go-ahead goal came only 3 minutes after Heerenveen tied things up…highlights to come
