(AP) American forward Aron Johansson scored twice and was involved in another goal to lead AZ Alkmaar over Cambuur 3-1 Sunday in the Dutch League.


Johansson, who turns 22 next month, played for Iceland's under-21 team, made his U.S. national team debut in August and scored his first international goal in stoppage time during the Americans' 3-2 win at Panama in a World Cup qualifier Tuesday.


Johannsson gave AZ a 2-1 lead in the 43rd minute with a left-footed shot from 8 yards and added a goal in the 68th with a 15-yard right-footed shot after receiving a through pass and cutting back. He has seven goals in 10 league games this season and 10 goals in all competitions.

ROME (AP) New Jersey-born forward Giuseppe Rossi scored a hat trick, helping Fiorentina rally from a two-goal deficit for a 4-2 victory against two-time defending champion Juventus.


After Carlos Tevez and Paul Pogba gave Juventus a 2-0 halftime lead, Rossi converted a penalty kick in the 65th minute, then added goals in the 76th and 80th. Joaquin added his first Serie A goal in the 78th.


The 26-year-old Rossi, who lives in New Jersey, opted to play for Italy's national team over the U.S. He has eight goals this season after missing nearly two years because of a knee injury that needed three operations.


"Rossi has had two tough years both family-wise and injury-wise," Fiorentina captain Manuel Pasqual said. "He deserved a day like this."


Rossi's father, Fernando, was the coach at New Jersey's Clifton High School and died in 2010.


Juventus (6-1-1) and Napoli are five points behind Roma (8-0), which beat Napoli 2-0 Friday.

Tottenham (5-2-1) is fifth with 16 points, three behind league-leading Arsenal. Aston Villa (3-4-1) is 13th with 10 points.
