Clint Dempsey scored as the United States recorded their second win under Jurgen Klinsmann with a 3-2 friendly victory in Slovenia.

Edson Buddle put the Americans ahead when he converted a Dempsey pass after a defensive mistake but Tim¬†Matavz equalised for the hosts after he sprung the offside trap. The Fulham midfielder restored the American lead shortly before half-time with a downward header from Michael Bradley’s corner that took him level with Joe-Max Moore in the all-time American goalscoring charts. Jozy Altidore then converted a penalty after Fabian Johnson was felled in the box and, although¬†Matavz grabbed a second, the USA held on for the victory.
