(Reuters) - American international Aron Johannsson has extended his contract with Dutch club AZ Alkmaar days after scoring for his country in a World Cup warm-up international.
The Alabama-born striker, who represented Iceland at the under-21 level, signed a new deal that keeps him at AZ until 2018, the club said on its website (www.az.nl).
The 23-year-old joined AZ in January last year from Aarhus in Denmark and in a season-and-a-half scored 20 goals in 39 outings. His 17 goals this season made him the third highest scorer in the Dutch league.
Johannsson netted for the Americans in their 2-0 win over Azerbaijan in San Francisco on Wednesday.
