Clint Dempsey already has a hattrick

New, comments

His second goal put the United States up 5-0. Impatient for records Clint scored his third goal too.

It’s getting hard to keep track of Clint Dempsey’s goals at this point. Every time we try to update his goal total he scores. At the time of this writing he has a hattrick. At the time of this writing the United States is up 6-nil. There were 30 minutes left when we published.

In one game Clint Dempsey went from “maybe he will be fortunate enough to catch Landon Donovan” to “will Clint catch him on Tuesday?” The United States head to Panama for their next World Cup qualifying match. It’s possible that Clint becomes the greatest goalscorer in US history on that day.

His second goal was helped by Pulisic.

His third goal is self-made magic.

Fully operational, without reason to doubt.

Honduras should start sending out warning flares. MLS teams should start paying attention. This is a world class performance, and he may only be the second best player on the pitch tonight.
