Jozy Altidore, AZ and glorious Dutch Cup triumph in pictures

May 9, 2013, 6:00 PM EDT

Fair to say the men of the little Dutch club are pretty darned happy about this.

Thanks for the pictures to FIFA.com, and also to U.S. national team striker Jozy Altidore himself (for the one of him on the bus with the trophy. They do make quite a handsome couple, don’t they?)

As we said in the previous Altidore-related post, this was AZ’s first Dutch Cup – technically, it’s the KNVB Beker, or the KNVB Cup – since 1982.

We’ll say it just one more time: barring something quite unlikely, this is one of the last times you will see Altidore in the AZ jersey. He’ll be gone like spring tulips by July. Enjoy the brief “slide show.”

    Good for him. Through all the turmoil and his disappointments, this is a great achievement for him and the club!

    “Little Dutch club”

    It is not as though AZ are massive underdogs. This year will be only the second time in 10 years that they fail to finish in the top 5. They were champions in 2009 and dramatically missed out on being champions on the final day in 2007. In the same period, they reached the quarter finals of the Europa League twice, and the semi finals once, knocking out clubs like Newcastle United, Fenerbahce, Villareal, Shaktar Donesk, and Udinese out of the tournament.
