Holman stars for AZ Alkmaar but suffers injury
Brett Holman was in top form for AZ Alkmaar on the weekend before coming off because of a groin injury.
The Australian midfielder, who scored in the Socceroos' World Cup qualifying win over Oman last week, scored and provided an assist as Alkmaar were eventually held to a 2-2 draw by Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam in the Eredivisie.
Holman netted with a deflected effort in the 14th minute before setting up Roy Beerens to make it 2-0 around eight minutes later.
But unfortunately for Alkmaar, the former NEC Nijmegen man limped off in the 52nd minute with a groin problem which could sideline him for a few weeks, and it opened the door for Ajax to make a comeback by scoring twice in the second half to force a draw despite having Eyong Enoh sent off with 20 minutes remaining.
