Fulham striker Clint Dempsey was delighted to be on the mark for the USA this week.

Dempsey netted with a well-placed header on 41 minutes, it was his 24th strike for the US national team and moved him into joint fourth in the States’ all-time goal records – alongside Joe-Max Moore. Former Fulham defender, Carlos Bocanegra, also earned his 100th cap for the national team.

“It’s great to be alongside that type of company and be moving up the charts in the sense of goals, especially the majority of my career playing in the midfield,” said Dempsey of his achievement.

“Anytime you can score goals and help your team win you always feel good about that. To find yourself when your career is done towards the top is a great feeling.”
