[AMERICANS ABROAD] Aron Johannsson upped his tally to 25 goals this season for Dutch club AZ as his first-half penalty kick that barely crossed the line gave the Dutch club a 1-0 win over Russia's Anzhi Makhachkala in the first leg of their Europa League round-of-16 series. For U.S. World Cup hopefuls in action abroad this weekend.

Johannson is just six goals shy of Jozy Altidore's American record for goals in all competitions abroad set last season with AZ.

Leading Scorers (2013-14):
25+1 Aron Johannsson (AZ)
14 Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna)
9 Sacha Kljestan
(Anderlecht)
(Goals in all club competitions.)

    Aron Johannsson should be the starter for USMNT. And not Jozy Altidore!

    The way things are going for both, I would have to agree. But I don't Know if that would implie a major change in strat and tacts. in a defensive countering start altidore should probably start, if we get scored on early like in all the previous WCs and against Ukraine, johannsson should be subbed in immediately. Maybe both should start. Maybe johannsson can play right wing? Who knows but be carefull about fielding too many offensive dudds onto the field against such strong opposition.
