Freddy Adu made a long-awaited return to American soccer in the second half, and set up the winning strike with a long pass to Landon Donovan. He tracked down Adu’s cross, then passed through the Panama defense to Clint Dempsey, who slid as he redirected the ball into the low corner of the net. The USA are riding Clint Dempsey’s hot feet all the way to the Gold Cup Final.
