Tottenham’s Clint Dempsey is dressed for the occasion and he’s followed by his USA international colleague Tim Howard.
At a U.S. training camp in January 2005, during a typical possession exercise at a morning session, something took place that would change U.S. Soccer for the next eight years. In what is normally a tedious practice drill that stresses the importance of team movement, pressure and passing, Clint Dempsey, 21, was in a league of his own. Time and time again, Dempsey single handedly kept possession by dribbling through pressure and daring anyone to take the ball away from him. No one could.
Arena, noticing the entire function of the training session was being foiled by one player, yelled, “Keep it simple, Clint!” and “Off your feet quicker, Clint!” Until, finally, Dempsey responded with, “Why? They can’t take the ball away from me.”
Remembering 2012: A few records tied and broken this year.
Abby Wambach & Alex Morgan tied WNT duo record with 55 combined goals; Alex Morgan is the second player in U.S. history to record at least 20 goals and 20 assists in year; MNT finished year with 9-2-3 record, .750 winning % to match 2005 modern era record; Carlos Bocanegra tallied his 14th career goal in 2012 to set record for a MNT defender
