Clinton Drew "Clint" Dempsey (born March 9, 1983) is an American soccer player who plays for Fulham and the United States national team. Dempsey usually plays as either an attacking midfielder, or a striker.

Growing up in Nacogdoches, Texas, Dempsey played for one of the top state youth soccer clubs, the Dallas Texans before playing for Furman University's men's soccer team. In 2004, Dempsey was drafted by the Major League Soccer club, New England Revolution, where he quickly integrated himself into the starting lineup. Hindered initially by a jaw injury, he would score seven goals in 24 appearances with the Revolution. Since 2007, Dempsey has played for Premier league team Fulham and has become the club's Premier League record goalscorer.

Dempsey first represented the United States at the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship in the United Arab Emirates. He made his first appearance with the senior team on November 17, 2004 against Jamaica, and was named in the squad for the 2006 World Cup, scoring the teams only goal of the tournament. Dempsey recorded the fastest goal in U.S. World Cup qualifying history by scoring after 53 seconds into a 8-0 defeat of Barbados. In the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Dempsey scored against England, becoming the second American, after Brian McBride, to score goals in multiple World Cup tournaments.

Youth

Dempsey was born in Nacogdoches, Texas and, for much of his childhood, his family lived in a trailer park, where he and his siblings grew up playing soccer with the local children or anyone he could find. His older brother Ryan was offered a tryout for the Dallas Texans, an elite youth soccer club, but young Clint, who had come along, was noticed and recruited while passing time juggling a ball on the sidelines.[2] Dempsey became a standout on the team at an early age, but had to quit due to his family's time and money constraints as his eldest sister Jennifer was becoming a ranked youth tennis player.[3] But several parents of his teammates with the Texans offered to assist the Dempseys with expenses and travel, allowing him to rejoin the club.

He went on to be the captain and high scorer of the Texans and was honored with MVP in the Tampa Bay Sun Bowl tournament. He was offered a place in the youth Arsenal team but because cousin Arya Ashtari was severely ill, he had to move on from the Arsenal academy. Dempsey studied the play of Argentina, especially Diego Maradona. Clint was heartbroken when the news came to Nacogdoches that Maradona would not be playing in the 1994 World Cup game played in the Cotton Bowl.[4] He attended Furman University as a health and exercise major and a key player for the Paladins. In his three seasons at Furman, Dempsey started 61 out of 62 games in central midfield and scored 17 goals.

Club career

New England Revolution

New England Revolution selected Clint Dempsey 8th overall in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft. His rookie season he started 23 of 24 matches scoring 7 goals. Dempsey helped the Revolution to the Eastern Conference Finals and earned 2004 MLS Rookie of the Year Honors. In 2005 Dempsey scored 10 goals and added 9 assists in 26 games. He scored the game winning goal in the Eastern Conference Final on the way to the MLS Cup Final. The following year Dempsey added 8 more goals in 2006 but missed significant time in the playoffs due to injury. He came on as a substitute in the MLS Cup Final but the Revolution lost their second straight final this time on penalties.

Fulham

2007–2009

Dempsey training with Fulham in August 2009

In December 2006, English club Fulham offered the MLS $4 million for the transfer of Dempsey, then the largest amount ever offered for an MLS player.[5][6] On 11 January 2007, he was granted a work permit from the Home Office as Fulham announced his signing on a long-term deal.[7] This made Dempsey the most expensive US export to the Premier League in a deal worth a reported £2 million.[8] He made his Fulham debut in a 1–1 home draw against Tottenham Hotspur on 20 January.[9] His FA Cup debut followed seven days later in a 3–0 home win over Stoke City.[10] Dempsey scored his first goal for Fulham on 5 May as he struck the only goal of a 1–0 home win over Liverpool.[11] This goal saved Fulham from relegation and effectively guaranteed their place in the top-flight for the following season.[12]

On 25 August, Dempsey scored his first goal of the 2007–08 season in a 2–1 away loss to Aston Villa.[13] He followed this up by scoring in Fulham's next fixture in a 3–3 home draw against Tottenham on 1 September.[14] Two weeks later he opened the scoring in Fulham's 1–1 away draw against Wigan Athletic.[15] These goals gave Dempsey three in as many games after Fulham manager Lawrie Sanchez's decision to convert Dempsey into a striker following an injury to compatriot Brian McBride.[16] On 29 September, Dempsey was involved in an aerial collision with John Terry during a 0–0 draw at Stamford Bridge which resulted in Terry being substituted.[17] There was some suggestion that Dempsey used a deliberate elbow on Terry,[18] however, he wasn't punished for the incident as referee Martin Atkinson didn't report it to the Football Association.[19] On 3 November, Dempsey scored during Fulham's 3–1 home win over Reading to secure just a second league win of the season.[20] He scored his last goals of the season in a 1–1 home draw with Wigan Athletic and 5–1 away loss to Tottenham in December.[21][22] In May 2008, Fulham announced Dempsey had signed a contract extension which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2010.[23] Fulham beat Portsmouth 1–0 on the final day of the season to secure Premier League status for another year.[24] He ended the season as Fulham's top Premier League goalscorer with six goals.[25]

Dempsey scored his first goal of the 2008–09 season in a 1–1 away draw at Portsmouth on 26 October.[26] His first home goal of the season came in a 3–0 win over Middlesbrough on 20 December.[27] Eight days later he scored twice in the West London derby against Chelsea which included a last-minute equaliser in a 2–2 home draw.[28] On 24 February 2009, Dempsey scored the first FA Cup goal of his career in a 2–1 home win over Swansea City in the fifth-round.[29] His final home goal of the season came in a 2–1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers on 11 March.[30] Fulham came from a goal down to beat Manchester City 3–1 away from home as Dempsey scored two goals on 12 April.[31] For the second successive season, Dempsey ended as Fulham's top Premier League goalscorer joint with Andrew Johnson with seven goals.[32] These goals helped Fulham secure a seventh-place finish in the Premier League, the highest in the clubs history, and confirmed their qualification for the newly formed UEFA Europa League for the following season.[33]

2009–10 season

On August 13, 2009, Dempsey signed a contract extension to remain with Fulham through 2013.[34] On August 20, he scored his first goal in European competition, in the newly formed Europa League, netting Fulham's second goal in a 3–1 win against Amkar Perm in the play-off round.[35] On December 30, La Gazzetta dello Sport named Dempsey as one of the top eleven Premier League players of the season.[36] On January 17, 2010, Dempsey suffered a suspected cruciate knee ligament injury in a 2–0 away defeat to Blackburn Rovers.[37] On March 11, Dempsey returned, coming on in the last minute of Fulham's loss away to Juventus and then completed 72 minutes of their away loss to Manchester United in the league.[38] On March 18, Dempsey came off the bench against Juventus in their second leg last 16 tie in the Europa League and scored the winner on a long chip shot. Fulham won the game 4-1 and this game awarded Fulham an award, as well as Dempsey receiving an award from his 'Wonderful' (Quote from the commentator on ESPN) goal.[39] The Guardian suggested that the goal "might become the most famous goal in Fulham's history".[40] On May 12, Dempsey replaced Bobby Zamora in the 55th minute of the 2010 UEFA Europa League Final, thus making history in becoming the first ever American to appear in a major European final. In the end, Fulham lost the match, as Atlético Madrid's Diego Forlán scored in the 116th minute of extra time, giving Atlético a 2–1 win.[41] His performances throughout 2009–10 earned him the designation of Most Valuable Player among Americans in Europe by SoccerOverThere.com, among other sources.[42]

2010–11 season

Dempsey remained a regular starter, one of only five Americans in the Premier League to do so currently. On 18 September 2010, he scored an equalising goal on 56 minutes with a header against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park in the 1-1 draw and continue Fulham's undefeated streak in the Barclays Premier League.[43] On October 2, he scored against West Ham United past Robert Green, the same keeper that he had scored against in the World Cup.[44] He then continued his form by scoring two goals against Wigan Athletic on October 30 as Fulham ran out 2 – 0 winners.[45][46] On January 22, Dempsey scored another double versus Stoke, putting Fulham temporarily out of relegation contention.[47]

On March 19, Dempsey became the first American to score 10 goals in a Premier League season, beating Brian McBride's previous record of nine, also set while at Fulham in the 2005-06 season and 2006-07 season.[48]

Clint Dempsey broke Fulham's Premier League goalscoring record by netting twice in a 3-0 victory over Bolton on April 27, 2011. He has scored a total of 33 goals for the team in the Premier League, topping both Brian McBride and Steed Malbranque, each with 32. With these goals, he has now scored 12 goals for Fulham in the 2010-11 season.[49]

At the end of the season, Dempsey was voted Fulham player of the season by Fulham fans.

2011-12 season

Dempsey marked his return to the first team by scoring a brace in the first leg of their Europa League play-off clash against Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk at Craven Cottage. Dempsey ended with two goals as Fulham ran out 3-0 winners, setting up a comfortable second leg in Ukraine.[50]

International career

Dempsey training with the United States in April 2006

Dempsey first played for the American national team at the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship in the United Arab Emirates. He made his first appearance with the senior team on November 17, 2004 against Jamaica. He has frequently lined up as a striker due to his scoring threat and aerial ability, but his preferred and more normal role is on the wing. He won the highest individual honor in American soccer when he was named Honda Player of the Year for 2006, beating Fulham teammates Kasey Keller and Brian McBride in a poll of sportswriters. Dempsey received 237 points in voting by 207 sports journalists to claim the award.

On May 2, 2006, Dempsey was named to the U.S. roster for the 2006 tournament in Germany. He was the only American player to score a goal in the tournament[51] with his equalizing goal in the Americans' eventual 2–1 loss to Ghana.

In the United States' opening 2010 World Cup qualifier, Dempsey recorded the fastest goal in U.S. qualifying history with a chest trap and sliding shot 53 seconds into a 8–0 defeat of Barbados. But thereafter, Dempsey experienced a dip in form leading some to doubt his first-choice status with the national team. However, Dempsey turned his fortunes around in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup. In the final group stage match against Egypt, Dempsey scored a trademark diving header off a Jonathan Spector cross, making the final result 3–0. This, combined with Brazil's 3–0 victory against Italy in the other group match that was being played simultaneously, put the U.S. through to the semifinals.[52] In the semi-final match against Spain, Dempsey scored to put the USA up 2–0 to send them to the finals. He was named the Man of the Match for his performance.[53] Dempsey scored in his third straight game in the Confederations Cup Final against Brazil, redirecting a similar cross from Spector in the 10th minute to open the scoring.[54] Following the loss, he was awarded the Bronze Ball as the tournament's 3rd best performer.[55][56] He ended the World Cup qualifying campaign tied with Landon Donovan as the team's 2nd top scorer, behind Jozy Altidore, with five goals in thirteen matches.

On June 12, 2010, Dempsey became the second American (after Brian McBride) to score in more than one World Cup when he scored the equalizer goal against England in the Americans' first game of the 2010 World Cup after the West Ham and English goalkeeper Robert Green made a major error.[57]

International goals

Playing style

Known for his toughness, Dempsey played two games with a broken jaw in 2004 before the team trainer diagnosed it, and upon his return, he played through the pain of a sprained ankle. Despite usually playing in wide positions, he frequently scores close-range goals and has scored repeatedly with diving headers in crowded situations. His tenacity in midfield combined with his audacious dribbling skills frequently results in opponents fouling him, and Dempsey has gained a reputation for fierce play. He was suspended by the New England Revolution for two weeks in March 2006 for a fist fight with teammate Joe Franchino during a practice game[3] and was twice suspended by MLS during the 2006 season for violent conduct against opponents, including an elbow that broke the jaw of national teammate Jimmy Conrad. In a similar incident with Fulham in 2007, Dempsey broke the cheekbone of Chelsea defender John Terry in an aerial challenge but was not penalized.[58]

Dempsey is a versatile attacking midfielder normally played on the left or right for Fulham and the United States. However, he has proven to be more of a threat the closer to goal he gets. His goals against Egypt and Spain in the Confederations Cup came almost immediately after being moved to forward by a substitution from Bob Bradley.

Music

One of Dempsey's passions outside of football is hip hop music. Using the alias "Deuce," he, along with fellow Texas rappers XO and the late Houston rapper Big Hawk from the Screwed Up Click, are featured rapping the song "Don't Tread" in a Nike football advertising campaign for the 2006 World Cup with the intention to showcase both the sport's working-class roots and the United States team ahead of the World Cup.[62] The song's video is dedicated to his sister Jennifer, who, at age sixteen, was suddenly struck with a fatal brain aneurysm. At Dempsey's request, the video ends with a shot of him placing a flower at her grave.[3]
