There is no doubt Clint Dempsey is a great scorer. However, if you want to talk about the greatest field player of all time, there is no doubt Landon Donovan is the GOAT. 

Not only can Donovan score, he makes the players around him better with his passing. And if you want to talk about big moments, never forget that stoppage-time goal in 2010 that propelled the United States to the knockout round of the World Cup.

No other USMNT player comes to close being better than Donovan.

Donovan had his time as the best American soccer player of all time. But Clint Dempsey will forever be the greatest. 

Donovan never had the scoring touch Dempsey has. When he has the ball on his feet, you know Team USA is going to find the back of the net. Donovan may be a better passer, but Dempsey makes people better by creating space for others by shifting the defense towards him.

Dempsey is the real Captain America, and it's not even close.
