American forward Jozy Altidore was the target of racist chants Tuesday during AZ Alkmaar’s 5-0 win over second-tier Den Boscha in the quarterfinals of the Dutch Cup.

The game was stopped by referee Reinold Wiedemeijer, but Altidore himself asked for it to be continued and he scored with a penalty. He has won praise for his calm response to the situation.

Here now is a video clip of Altidore’s interview following the racial abuse that he suffered during the Dutch cup match.
