Video: Jozy Altidore's game-winning goal in the Dutch Cup

AZ have a trophy, and soon they'll be getting money.

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

Jozy Altidore has had an excellent season for AZ Alkmaar, scoring 31 goals in all competitions. None of them were more important than the one he scored on Wednesday to win the Dutch Cup for AZ Alkmaar. His strike put AZ ahead of PSV Eindhoven 2-0 early in the first half, and they went on to win the game, 2-1. This Dutch Cup win was AZ's first since 1982.

Since arriving at AZ in 2011, Altidore has scored 51 goals in just 91 appearances with the club. His goal-scoring record has resulted in him being linked to bigger clubs in Europe, despite his previous struggles with Hull City and Villarreal. AZ seem to be interested in selling if they get an acceptable offer, and it probably won't be long before Altidore is playing in a league that's a bit more accessible to American fans. If he performs well for the U.S. national team this summer (though he's missing two of their games), it's only going to get easier for AZ to cash in.
