Watch: Clint Dempsey scores on breakaway to put USA up 2-0

Sunday February 8th, 2015

Moments after Michael Bradley put the U.S. men's national team up 1-0 against Panama, Gyasi Zardes and Clint Dempsey combined to double the American lead. 

Zardes, playing in front of his LA Galaxy hometown crowd at the StubHub Center, won a ball in the midfield and started his break down the field. He threaded the defense with a pass to Clint Dempsey, who dribbled past Panamanian goalkeeper Jaime Penedo and scored. 

The goal was Dempsey's 40th for the United States. 

The U.S. took its 2-0 lead against Panama into halftime.
