Lost amid all of the Champions League action on Tuesday was Clint Dempsey's 77th minute goal that sparked a come from behind victory for Fulham over Swansea City in the FA Cup.

Trailing 1-0, after a 47th-minute goal from Jason Scotland, Fulham found its equalizer when Dempsey headed home a Simon Davies corner kick. Dempsey's goal marks his fifth for Fulham this season and first in the FA Cup.

The U.S. national team midfielder nearly gave the Cottagers the lead a minute later but was denied by goalkeeper Dorus De Vries on the one-on-one opportunity.

Four minutes after Dempsey's leveler, Fulham found the game-winning goal courtesy of Bobby Zamora. The fifth round victory booked Fulham a date with Manchester United in the quarterfinals on March 7.

What do you think of Dempsey's goal? Did you see it? Enjoying his form with Fulham? Hoping to see a goal like that against the likes of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic?
