Dempsey & Johnson Star for the USA!
With the focus currently being on the ongoing Euro 2008 championships, it almost slipped off the radar that some of our players are involved in World Cup Qualifying ties.
The USA are one country battling for qualification and their latest match saw them defeat Barbados 8-0 with the game having a very strong Fulham influence.
For a start, our very own Clint Dempsey got his name on the score sheet twice.
The first of his brace saw him also notch up a record.
The goal, scored after just 53 seconds was the fastest ever scored by the USA in a World Cup qualifying fixture. Incidentally, the pass for that goal came from soon to be an ex-Fulham old boy Carlos Bocanegra.
We here at Vital Fulham would like to congratulate Clint on putting his name in the record books.
Elsewhere, in the same game, Eddie Johnson also got on the score sheet. Johnson, who joined us in the January transfer window, struggle dot make an impact in the Premier League but if he keeps scorin at international level, we`ll sure hi sname will be in the frame when Roy Hodgson pulls his squad together to resume pre-season training sometime in July.
