Those expectations only grew as "Aron Bacon" transferred to AZ Alkmaar in the Netherlands, where he briefly paired with Jozy Altidore and devoured the Dutch league with a level not seen by an American striker since, well, Altidore the year before. His performances for both club and country have been electrifying and lent credence to the thought that Johannsson would play a big role in Brazil. However, after replacing Altidore in the first half against Ghana Johnansson never took the field again in the tournament and it was later revealed that he had been shelved because of an ankle injury, that required surgery and cost him the first part of the 2014 Dutch season.
