Altidore scores 24th, most for American in Europe
Jozy Altidore broke Clint Dempsey’s record for most goals by an
American in a European club season, scoring his 24th Sunday in AZ
Alkmaar’s 2-1 loss at RKC Waalwijk in the Dutch Eridivisie.
The 23-year-old tied the score in the 69th minute, running onto
a pass into the penalty area and chipping goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet
with a left-footed shot from about 12 yards. Altidore has 17 league
goals to go along with seven in the Dutch Cup.
Dempsey scored 23 goals for Fulham last season, including 17 in
the English Premier League, three in the FA Cup and three in the
Europa League. He transferred to Tottenham in August.
Mart Lieder scored his second of the game for host Waalwijk in
