US downs Costa Rica to reach final
Clint Dempsey's milestone goal sealed a 2-0 victory for the US over Costa Rica on Saturday in the semifinals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in Dallas, Texas. In the final on Wednesday, the US will face either defending champion Mexico or Jamaica. Jozy Altidore scored in the 72nd minute while Dempsey, who came on for Paul Arriola in the 66th minute, curled a perfectly struck free-kick ten minutes later for his 57th international goal. The goal tied Landon Donovan's mark for most in the history of the US team. Dempsey also matched the record in his 136th appearance for the senior team - 17 games faster than it took Donovan to score his 57 international goals.
