Commentary: Dempsey quickly proving that this is his tournament

This is Clint Dempsey’s World Cup.

It’s his World Cup to start the event properly, with a goal 29 seconds into the United States’ opening match against Ghana, the sixth-fastest goal in the tournament’s history. It’s his World Cup to get kicked in the face, break his nose, cough up blood and then go out in the next game and score again. It’s his World Cup to make history — first American to score in three different World Cups — and if you think the U.S. men’s national team can’t recover from its “unlucky draw” against Portugal on Sunday, then you’re underestimating the leadership and willpower of the team’s greatest player.
