Jozy Altidore has been billed as “The Next Big Thing In American Soccer™” for so long it’s easy to forget that he’s only 21. After several frustrating seasons with Villarreal, during which time he was loaned to Xerez, Hull City, and Bursaspor, some people were ready to write him off. Well, his play with new club AZ is telling all the haters to go suck it.

In just 8 games with AZ Alkmaar, young Josmer has scored six goals, meaning he’s now scored as many goals in three months of Dutch soccer as he did in three seasons with Villarreal (and subsequent loan teams).

This beauty here is Jozy’s opening goal in AZ’s 4-1 dismantling of Swedish champions Malmö FF.
