Clint Dempsey

Well, well, well, that was a hell of a start for the USMNT. Team captain Clint Dempsey took a ball on the left wing, danced around a bunch of defenders, and curled one off the post 30 seconds into the game for a 1-0. Take a look.


It was the fifth fastest goal in World Cup history. Coach Jürgen Klinsmann wanted a fast start and boy did he get one.
