Clint Dempsey fed Jozy Altidore for the go-ahead goal, then matched Landon Donovan’s American record with his 57th international goal, leading the United States over Costa Rica 2-0 on Saturday night in Arlington, Texas, and into the CONCACAF Gold Cup championship game.Playing in his home state, Dempsey entered in the 66th minute and made a perfectly timed through pass six minutes later that allowed Altidore to break in alone and beat goalkeeper Patrick Pemberton with a left-footed shot from 10 yards.Dempsey doubled the lead in the 82nd minute with a 27-yard free kick that went around a four-man defensive wall and got past Pemberton on two bounces.Dempsey’s goal sealed the win, putting the U.S. back in the championship after a shocking semifinal loss to Jamaica two years ago.The U.S. improved to 8-0-5 since Bruce Arena, who replaced Jurgen Klinsmann in November, returned for a second stint as national-team coach.Costa Rica routed the U.S. 4-0 in a World Cup qualifier in November, the final game before Klinsmann was fired.Arena showed another look to his ever-changing lineup, pairing Altidore and Jordan Morris on the front line and Michael Bradley and Kellyn Acosta in central midfield.David Villa and Frederic Brillant scored minutes apart early in the second half and New York City FC beat the Chicago Fire 2-1 to extend its home unbeaten streak to seven games. ...Teal Bunbury scored twice, Diego Fagundez had three assists and the New England Revolution beat the visiting Los Angeles Galaxy 4-3 to snap a four-game losing streak.
