Dempsey nets in Fulham victory

Clint Dempsey has gotten his groove back.

A week after scoring the equalizer in a 2-2 draw against Manchester City, the U.S. national team midfielder netted in Fulham's 3-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday, easily finishing off a Erik Nevland pass from ten yards out.

The goal, which came in the 87th minute, capped the scoring and was Dempsey's second of the season.

Here is the video:

What do you think of Dempsey's goal? Think he is finding his top form again? Eager to see him back with the U.S. national team in two weeks?

    It should be noted that Hodgson is Dempsey’s club coach and Bradley is his national team coach. The main difference? There are two.

    About 4 times as many games and practices for Fulham as he gets for the US. And pretty much the same team around him most games unlike the revolving door US.

    If you think those two factors don’t sginificantly influence performance I don’t know what to tell you.
