Club Team: Tottenham Hotspur (England)

Clint Dempsey, 29, from Texas, has been a wild card since he secured a spot on the senior national team in 2004. His unpredictability makes him a dangerous midfielder for defending opponents. With one-on-one challenges, Dempsey’s attacks aren’t of a consistent style, making him extremely difficult for opposing players to read and react to. He brings an exciting threat to the field that feeds energy into the U.S. National Team’s forward lineup. Dempsey also set a goal-scoring record for an American player in the English Premier League, racking up the points for Fulham before he moved on to Tottenham Hotspurs in early September.
