Clint Dempsey continued his good run of form with two more goals for Fulham on Sunday.
The winger, who scored the winner for the USA against Italy midweek, netted his team's third and fifth goals in a 5-0 win over Wolves, running his season total to 18 in all competitions.
Pavel Pogrebnyak was the big story on the day for the Cottagers. The Russian, who signed with the club during the winter transfer window, scored a clinical hat trick. After opening the scoring in the 36th minute with a header from a corner, he volleyed his second goal just before the break.
Dempsey added the third in the 56th minute after latching onto a through ball and rounding the 'keeper before pounding the ball home.
Pogrebnyak rounded out his day in the 61st, pouncing on a rebound to finish out the hat trick.
Dempsey added to his tally in the 83rd minute. New signing Mahamadou Diarra played the American through in the box where he put a left-footed shot into the net for his second goal of the day, rounding out the scoreline for Fulham.
