Charlison Benschop and Eric Lund, AZ - IFK Göthenburg (PRO SHOTS)
With World Cup players Sergio Romero and Simon Poulsen in the stands, AZ recorded a convincing win over Swedish outfit IFK Goteborg.

The home side began well, creating a host of early chances but former Sunderland striker Tobias Hysen fired a warning shot for the visitors with centre-back Niklas Moisander caught napping.

The introduction of Nick Van der Velden for Charlison Benschop made a difference and the breakthrough finally came in the 52nd minute. Estonian utility man Ragnar Klavan headed home a Maarten Martens corner prompting a relieved reaction from the home supporters.

However Klavan was pressed into defensive action from the kick-off when his challenge on Thomas Olsson prevented a certain equaliser.

Two minutes later, young Icelandic winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson announced himself in AZ's colours with an outrageous chip over Sandberg which found its way in via the post from 25 yards out.
