[AMERICANS ABROAD] U.S. star Jozy Altidore was injured when he was pushed into a sign board and knocked unconscious during AZ's Eredivisie match against NEC. He had to leave the game in the 35th minute. AZ, the league leader for much of the season, dropped it to fifth with the 1-1 tie in Nijmegen. In Scotland, Alejandro Bedoya scored his first goal for Rangers in its 5-0 win over Dundee United. For video of the Altidore incident and playoff action in Mexico ...

Altidore, AZ's top scorer with 15 league goals and 19 overall, suffered a head and back injury after clashing with NEC defender Pavel Cmovs in the 29th minute. As the players went for a ball at the midfield line, Cmovs pushed Altidore as the American slid off the field. Altidore then hit his head on the sign board. He returned to play but was replaced two minutes later.
