Clint Dempsey put the U.S. up 1-0 on a defection-ravaged Cuban team in the fourth minute of today’s Gold Cup quarterfinal in Baltimore.
A thus-far uninspired performance by the U.S. has, at least, resulted in a goal and once again it’s Clint Dempsey who scored to put his side up 1-0 on Haiti in tonight’s Gold Cup match at the Patriots’ stadium in Foxborough. Let’s not let Deuce take all the credit, though he’s certainly earned it thus far in the…
The USMNT’s Gold Cup opener was their first competitive match since the World Cup, and in the broadest sense, it’s all about the next one. Jurgen Klinsmann has said repeatedly how 2015 is a year of “transition” for the roster—reloading, getting younger, starting up the position battles that will play out from now…
Earlier this week, Clint Dempsey received a red card for tearing up a referee’s notebook in protest of what he thought was some poor officiating in a U.S. Open Cup match. Today, MLS doled out its punishment, suspending him from all competitions for three games.
The Portland Timbers met the Seattle Sounders last night in the U.S. Open Cup. The game ended 3-1, with Portland scoring the three goals and Seattle losing three men to red cards while finishing the match with just seven players on the pitch thanks to a late injury after they had already used all their subs. As you…
So, what we have below is an updated list of every MLS player's salary. There are some things worth talking about.
This is EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE of Clint Dempsey, American and major league soccer player, rapping at a video game's New York launch party last night. It is weird.
Clint Dempsey was craving some popcorn after the Seattle Sounders' game against Houston last night, so he gave his jersey to a kid in the stands in exchange for free reign at a bucket of popcorn. Also, anyone in the vicinity interested in seeing a shirtless Clint Dempsey got that view at no extra charge.
A top-16 finish is a success, so yesterday the two most prominent members of the USMNT received a phone call from Barack Obama congratulating them on their World Cup.
Clint Dempsey's goal in the 81st minute put the United States up 2-1 on Portugal and brought the Yanks back from their early deficit. Here's the outstanding call from Univision.
Looks like the Iceman will still cometh off the bench, with Jürgen Klinsmann opting to add to the midfield instead of bringing in a new striker to replace the injury Jozy Altidore.
USMNT striker Clint Dempsey is a fan favorite, a hero, and by all accounts an amazing man for reasons that have little to nothing to do with his ability to dribble and kick a soccer ball. We can now include "secretly recording a rap album" as one of those reasons.
It was an incidental injury, but after what happened to Jozy seeing another star player on the turf is the last thing any USMNT fan wanted to see. As it turns out, the injury was superficial, if painful-looking. Here's Clint Dempsey's nose being displaced in extreme slow motion.
It's the fastest goal in U.S. World Cup history, as Clint Dempsey put a clever move on the Ghana defender and tucked it in off the post. 1-0! Oh, and it sounded even better on Univision:
SI's Grant Wahl has the tick-tock on how Clint Dempsey ended up a Seattle Sounder, in a deal that caught everyone by surprise. It's a great read for anyone interested in the behind-the-scenes stuff, but I was particularly taken by how much of the dealing wasn't by the Sounders at all. Instead, it's clear that MLS…
Before becoming America's beacon of soccer opportunity in the English Premier League, Clint Dempsey was a college kid kicking around the pitch at Furman University. Here's a goofy "skills competition" Dempsey and some teammates put together roughly ten years ago.
After spending most of the first half pulling their usual "lay back, bomb it deep" style, the US broke through in the 36th minute. Jermaine Jones placed an overhead pass directly on the foot of Clint Dempsey, as the Honduras defender got turned around.
