MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Jozy Altidore needed only nine minutes midway through the first half to score three goals -- two from the penalty spot -- in AZ's 6-0 win over FC Utrecht. It was the fastest hat trick in club history, breaking a 35-year-old record, and gave Altidore 28 goals for the season in all competitions, the most ever by an American player abroad.

-- DaMarcus Beasley scored after coming on as a sub for Puebla's only goal in its 2-1 loss to Jaguares in Mexico's Liga MX.

-- Jose Torres played the entire game for Tigres in its 2-1 loss at UNAM that snapped its 13-game unbeaten streak to start the Liga MX's Torneo Clausura. Tigres leads Atlas by one point with three games to play in the first phase.

-- Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona started for Tijuana as its troubles continued in the Liga MX with a 5-0 loss at Cruz Azul. The defeat extended the Xolos' winless streak in the Torneo Clausura to 10 games after they opened with four straight wins following their Torneo Apertura title.

-- Tim Howard'
s Everton shut out Queens Park Rangers, 2-0, to remain fifth in the English Premier League and in striking distance of the top four.

-- John Anthony Brooks and Alfredo Morales went the distance for Hertha Berlin, which had to settle for a 1-1 tie with FC Ingolstadt 04. It could have clinched promotion to the German Bundesliga with a win.

    Why can't Jozy score for the USA? Is he used differently at AZ? Is anyone looking into it?

    As near as I can tell, AZ plays a classic Dutch 4-3-3 with Jozy as the lone striker and 2 tradition wingers as a general rule. I don't have the data for the last 2 matches, but thru April 7 in the league, Altidore had 18 goals with only 2 scored from headers. It appears that Alkmaar plays into his feet as he runs the channels more so than as the Brian McBride clone that both Bradley and JK have tried to make him. Of course, the US doesn't exactly have any tradition wingers really. The guys we play wide in a 4-2-3-1 tend to be more midfielders/inside forwards and we tend to lack the width that apparently Jozy thrives on. Just one man's take on it, of course.
