(Friday, April 13, 2012) -- United States striker Jozy Altidore scored both goals Wednesday for AZ Alkmaar in a 2-2 with FC Twente in the Dutch Eredivisie.

His first goal came off a corner kick when he pushed a defender away and ripped the ball past goalkeeper Sander Boschker for a 1-0 lead. Twente members wanted a foul called for the push, but referee Pieter Vink let it go.

The second goal came in the 70th minute and it was a thing of beauty. Altidore passed to a teammate in the middle, got the ball back while surrounded by defenders, but found enough space to blast the a shot into a lower corner of the net for a 2-1 advantage.

Altidore came out in the 80th minute for a defender, but AZ could not hold the lead and gave up a soft goal to Emir Bajrami in the 90th minute to surrender two badly needed points.

In second place, AZ (17-5-7, 58 points) slipped three points behind Ajax Amsterdam (18-4-7). In the German Bundesliga Wednesday, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim had a surprisingly easy time with Hamburger SV, winning 4-0.

German-American defender-midfielder Danny Williams played the final five minutes for Hoffenheim, while American forward Joe Gyau did not dress. German-American defender Timmy Chandler recorded an assist in a 90-minute effort for FC Nürnberg in a 4-1 victory over FC Scahlke 04.

German-Amerocan midfielder Jermaine Jones played 64 minutes for Schalke and, as usual, picked up a yellow card.

U.S. defender Steve Cherundolo went the distance on the right side for Hannover 96, which defeated VfL Wolfsburg 2-0.

German-American Andrew Wooten played the final 25 minutes for 1. FC Kaiserslautern's in its 3-1 loss to Bayer Leverkusen.

American keeper David Yelldell did not dress for Leverkusen.

German-American defender-midfielder Alfredo Morales dressed, but did not play for Hertha Berlin in its 2-1 loss to SC Freiburg.
