AMSTERDAM — 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.

U.S. striker Terrence Boyd scored in the 66th minute, giving Rapid Vienna a 2-2 tie against visiting Sturm Graz in the Austrian league.

The 22-year-old has six league goals this season.

PARIS (AP) — American midfielder Alejandro Bedoya scored his first Ligue 1 goal, giving Nantes a 1-0 win at Ajaccio on Saturday.

Bedoya, who joined Nantes in August, entered in the 81st and scored six minutes later

On Sunday, Monaco wasted a two-goal lead in a 2-2 draw at last-place Sochaux. Yannick Ferreira Carrasco scored twice in the first 10 minutes, but goals by Cedric Bakambu and Joseph Loby tied the score in the second half.

Monaco (6-0-4) is two points behind league-leading Paris Saint-Germain (7-0-3).

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.
