WASHINGTON, D.C. - Clint Dempsey scored twice in a five-minute span of the second half and moved into second place on the U.S. career scoring list, helping the Americans edge a second-string Germany team 4-3 in an exhibition game Sunday.

Preparing for three World Cup qualifiers in a 12-day span beginning Friday, U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann watched the Americans take a 4-1 lead and hang on to beat the team he helped win the 1990 World Cup as a player and coached to the 2006 semifinals.

In a game commemorating the 100th anniversary of the U.S. Soccer Federation, Jozy Altidore scored his first international goal in 1 1-2 years, and the Americans took a 2-0 first-half lead on an own goal by Germany goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who misjudged a backpass from his own defense.
