MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK]  Jozy Altidore began the new Dutch season where he left off with two spectacular goals three minutes apart early in the second half for AZ in its 2-2 tie at defending champion Ajax.

On the first goal, Altidore brushed aside challenges for Dutch international Gregory van der Wiel and Toby Alderweireld and beat a third defender before chipping goalie Kenneth Vermeer.

On the second goal, he played a one-two with a backheel to break free and smash the ball into the roof of the net from a sharp angle.

    Glad to see him ride through a physical challenge ... an odd weakness in his game previously given his physical attributes
