Only because Clint made another fantastic run. There were 20 other players on the pitch who could’ve got themselves into the area there, but Dempsey – again – made the right moves at the right time to get where he had to get.
I haven’t got time to frame-by-frame this one, but look at the goal here. Dempsey’s run goes in and out, stops almost, then when the ball’s in the area, there he is. A lesser player wouldn’t have been there for the tap in.
If tap-ins were so easy, more players would score them.
(and how about Bryan Ruiz making Ashley Cole look silly in the build-up?)
