US Open Cup Final All-Time Goalscorers

Posted by | Feature - History, US Open Cup, US Open Cup History | No Comments

The legendary Adelino “Billy” Gonsalves has scored more goals than any player in the history of the US Open Cup. Although, it is worth noting that many of the championships prior to 1968 were played over two and sometimes three legs. It might be a while before any modern players crack the list of championship game goalscorers since it took until 2010 for a player (Sanna Nyassi of the Seattle Sounders) to not only score more than one goal in a final in the Modern Era (1995-present), but also he’s the only one to score more than one championship game goal in a career. Fredy Montero later joined him by scoring his second career Open Cup Final goal in 2011. Two players joined the two-goal club as Maxi Urruti of FC Dallas and Juan Agudelo of the New England Revolution each had a brace in the title game. (Fun fact: There are eight Hall of Famers included in the list below. Can you name them?)
