American Exports: Altidore leads frontline in AZ win

AMSTERDAM — Jozy Altidore and AZ Alkmaar moved six point clear at the top of the Eredivisie thanks to a 2-0 victory over Friday night guests FC Utrecht.

The US striker worked 80 minutes, nearly picking up an assist for an early second-half through ball that Brett Holman fired off the post. Rasmus Elm's 66th-minute free kick counted as the winner, with Johann Gudmundsson adding insurance a minute from time.

Still perfect at home on the league season, the Cheese Farmers have now won four straight and 10 out of an 11-game Eredivisie unbeaten streak.
