US Men's National Soccer Team advances to 2017 Gold Cup Final

Clint Dempsey's 82nd-minute strike was the 57th of his worldwide career, tying him with Landon Donovan for the most all-time by a U.S. Men's National team player. He came off the bench in Saturday's semifinal against Costa Rica, assisting on Jozy Altidore's opener before tying Landon Donovan's all-time USMNT goals record in the 2-0 victory.

"It'd be great, especially to do it in a final and try to help the team win a trophy would be awesome", he said.

With the win, the USA moves on to its record 10th Gold Cup final against Jamaica on Wednesdayat Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

If the USMNT manages to pull off a win on Saturday, they'll head to the Final against the victor of Sunday's Semi-Final match, which features a showdown between Jamaica and Mexico.

Dempsey's storied career began in Texas, journeying through the MLS and English Premier League.

Team USA was somewhat flat through the group stage of the Gold Cup, getting the wins they needed but failing to impress with disjointed (and, at times, altogether non-energetic) play.
