31-Year-Old Midfielder Seattle Sounders FC MLS
Dempsey scored in the 81st minute of the United States' 2-2 draw with Portugal at the World Cup on Sunday.
Dempsey was the lone striker Sunday with Jozy Altidore (hamstring) sidelined, and he was able to take a short Graham Zusi cross and direct it into the goal off his stomach. The score gave the US a 2-1 lead, which they ultimately squandered with just seconds remaining. Dempsey did not appear to be limited by his broken nose at all, and he did not even wear a mask during the game. He's found the back of the net in both of the US' games in Brazil and he'll be looking to make it three-for-three against Germany on Thursday. The US will advance to the knockout round with a win or a draw.
