AZ Alkmaar’s Jozy Altidore pays tribute to Newtown victims

Posted by - December 23, 2012 - MLS & US, Netherlands

It may have been slightly homemade in effort, but that does not in any way decrease the wonderful sentiment displayed by AZ Alkmaar player Jozy Altidore.

USA international Altidore showed that the awful recent events in Newtown where a gunman shot dead 26 people, mainly children, were playing on his mind, and he took the opportunity to share his thoughts during Alkmaar v Twente.

The forward wrote the names of the 20 children and six adults on his boots with marker pen, and also wore a black armband to commemorate the victims.

A really nice gesture from an American plying his trade many miles from home.
