Two Altidore goals not enough

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Jozy Altidore scored his 12th and 13th goals of the Eredivisie season, but they were not enough as AZ gave up a late equalizer and had to settle for a 2-2 tie with third-place FC Twente, dropping it three points behind Ajax in the race for the Dutch league title.

Altidore, who has 17 goals in all competitions for AZ, twice put AZ ahead at home with goals in the 3rd and 70th minutes, but Emir Bajrami scored in the 90th minute to cost AZ two points.

Altidore's 13 goals put him tied for seventh place in the Eredivisie.

AZ's 2-2 tie with Vitesse in its last league win on April 1 allowed Ajax to take over at the top.

Ajax, a 4-0 winner over Heerenveen on Wednesday, has won nine straight league games by a margin of 31-3.

    He got away with a blatant shove on that first goal. Second goal was pretty sweet, though.
