Dempsey gets the game winner at Craven Cottage. An amazing goal and he'd only just come on as a substitute. Fulham needed four goals to beat Juventus in the Europa League match after Trezeguet scored in the first two minutes, but a red card to Cannavaro reduced Juventus to ten men and gave Fulham a live line. Dempsey made the day magical with the winner.
Dempsey said: "I just thought, what the heck and tried to put it in the far post and it went in."
Dempsey has scored a few big goals for Fulham. In his first year with the side he got the winner against Liverpool that enabled them to stay in the Premier League.
I wonder if Clint Dempsey's wife was in the stands to see this game? Is she becoming the first American WAG? I'm sure Mrs. Dempsey has gained quite a following since her Sports Illustrated shoot took place.
Ray Hudson's Call of Dempsey's Goal:
"He takes everything in the universe into account on this goal. Just stabs it. Doesn't even need to look!"
