The USMNT was absolutely dominant today taking on Cuba at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore for their Gold Cup quarterfinal matchup. Jürgen Klinsmann’s side was lead by three goals scored by who else but Clint Dempsey, the last one courtesy of a wonderful square ball in the box from Michael Bradley.

Below are all three wonderful efforts of Dempsey’s hat-trick. The first of the three goals came early on in the 4th minute of the game from a fantastic cross by Timmy Chandler.


Dempsey’s second was a penalty attempt in the 64th minute.


And the icing on the cake came in the 78th.


The goals brought Dempsey’s international scoring mark to 47 all-time, trailing only Landon Donovan on the USA’s career goal scorers list.

The USMNT now advances to meet to play either Jamaica or Haiti in the Gold Cup semi-finals in Atlanta on July 22.
