Clint Dempsey: Hat trick hero

A month ago I wrote about the "Donovan vs Dempsey" competition. Who is the better player? Well, I think there are waves of talent in life when you are struggling, and others in which you are anything but. Now Dempsey is truly the king of US Men's soccer as Donovan hands over the baton in amicable manner.

And how does Dempsey do this? Well, as a midfielder, one usually doesn't score as many goals as forwards. As a midfielder/forward this becomes more possible. For the second time this month, Clint has scored a hat trick. His first was in FA Cup action. His second came in the Premier League today against 5th place Newcastle United, winning the game for the Cottagers 5-2. It is the first hat trick for an American in the Premier League. Dempsey continues to write history.

Enjoy the goals:
