This doesn't seem likely to happen.

No matter what Clint Dempsey does for the rest of his United States national team career, he's never going to completely wipe Landon Donovan from the record books. But with his goal on Saturday against Costa Rica, Dempsey did move one step closer to diminishing Donovan's place in history by tying the USMNT's all-time scoring record.
