21 year old Nigerian forward Fred Friday scored his third league goal for Dutch side AZ Alkmaar which saved them from defeat helping them to a 1-1 draw against PEC Zwolle.

After a slow start to life in the Netherlands, Friday appears to have found his feet with three goals this year, which includes a brace against Dutch League giants PSV in a 2-4 loss for his team.

The former Lillestroem forward was introduced in the 71st minute with his side trailing PEC Zwolle 0-1 after the visitors took a 48 minute lead.

Fred Friday proved his mettle in front of goal by tapping in a ball from Levi Garcia with eight minutes left to play in the game, which also had Kingsley Ehizibue on for 90 minutes for the visitors before he was replaced in stoppage time.

He now has 9 goals in all competitions for AZ, with four of his goals coming for the B team while five came in games for the senior team in the domestic cup, Europa League and the Dutch League.
