The U.S. Beat Italy For The First Time Ever Thanks To This Clint Dempsey Goal

With Landon Donovan unfit to take the pitch, the U.S. wasn't given much chance to beat Italy in today's international friendly match in Genoa. But Clint Dempsey—scoring machine for Fulham of late—drew first blood for the Yanks off a timely pass from Jozy Altidore. It was the first non-penalty score by an American against Italy in 20 years and led to the first U.S. win over Italy in 11 tries dating back to 1930. [ESPN2]
