Clint Dempsey Bloodied by Kick to the Nose From John Boye


Clint Dempsey scored a goal vs. Ghana inside of 30 second seconds — the sixth-fastest in World Cup history. About a half hour later the American star took an inadvertant boot to the nose from Ghana defender John Boye. Jozy Altidore has already left the match with a strained hamstring. Dempsey, however, received treatment and remained in the game. Boye didn’t receive a card on the play, either.

Americans often bemoan soccer players lack of toughness. Demspey is a fine counterpoint to that argument. (Don’t tread.)

It also provided yet another fun Jurgen Klinsmann reaction GIF.
