Not even the winter break is enough to cool down Aron Johannsson.
Playing in AZ Alkmaar’s first game since Dec. 21, Johannsson got back on the scoresheet in the club’s 3-0 victory over NAC Breda on Saturday. The U.S. Men’s National Team forward found the back of the net mere moments from halftime, getting on the end of a cross from the left flank before heading a ball that ricocheted off his body but still rolled past the goal line after kissing the inside of the post.
Johannsson’s goal, which gave AZ a 2-0 lead, gives him 19 across all competitions this season. He also now has 12 in league play, which makes him the third-highest scorer in the Eredivisie behind SC Heerenveen’s Alfredh Finnbogason (17) and Feyenoord’s Graziano Pelle (13).
Here is the goal:
What do you think of Johannsson’s latest goal? How many more will he score by season’s end? Starting to think every U.S. forward should go to AZ?
