Jozy Altidore grabs two goals and an assist in AZ win

The American striker continued his sparkling run of form and extended his record as Europe's highest-scoring American
Jozy Altidore netted his 29th and 30th goals of the 2012-13 season with a brace against SC Heerenveen.

Altidore bookended a 4-0 AZ Alkmaar win with goals in the 29th and 65th minutes, and also assisted a Johann Berg Gudmundsson goal in the 62nd minute. The other goal, assisted by Gudmundsson, was scored by Roy Beerens in the 32nd minute.

The goals give Altidore 23 league goals on the season, and a landmark 30 in all competitions, yet another elevation of the record Altidore made his own earlier this year as the best-scoring American in a European top league.

It's the former Red Bull man's fifth goal in his last three matches. Altidore scored a hat trick in a 6-0 win over Utrecht earlier this season.
