Clint Dempsey is one goal away from passing Landon Donovan on the all-time scoring leader for the United States national team. He can do it as soon as tonight, when the USA plays Jamaica in the Gold Cup final.
Fox Soccer, who’s broadcasting the game, would seem to really appreciate it if Dempsey can go ahead and just take care of business now. How do we know? They issued a video letter to Dempsey asking him to do just that.
It’s obviously a playful request — delivered by Rachel Bonnetta — but the message is crystal clear: There’s not going to be a much better stage than a cup final held at home to break this record.
Let’s get it done.
