AZ Alkmaar summer signing Fred Friday finally got off the mark in the Dutch Eredivisie with a brace for his team in their 2-4 loss to PSV Eindhoven.

Since moving to the Dutch League, the 21 year old who was the goal king in Norway while at Lillestroem has struggled to match the form that made AZ splash €1.5M on him.

However against PSV, he was handed a rare start and he proved the manager right by reducing the deficit for his team in the 17th minute after Jethro Willems brace put PSV two goals ahead.

Although his team failed to claw their way back into the game, the Nigerian was on hand to score a late consolation for his team five minutes from full time, who were reduced to 10 men following the sending off of Stijn Wuytens.

The brace by Fred means he has now scored in all competitions for AZ, as he previous found the back of the net in the Europa League and the Dutch Cup, with four goals to his name as well for AZ II.
