The majority of the Tottenham squad are now enjoying their summer holidays: Kyle Walker has been Tweeting from Barbados while the public have been trying to spot Gareth Bale who is currently taking a break in Florida.
In the meantime, there’s no rest for Clint Dempsey who has been instrumental in USA’s ongoing World Cup qualifying campaign and for our midfielder / striker / in the hole / impact sub, there is one more game to go against Honduras on June 18th.
It’s been a great few months at international level for the 30 year old and the period began with former Spur Jurgen Klinsmann awarding Clint the captain’s armband back in March. As the season finished, Dempsey scored twice in a memorable win over Germany and in doing so he took his international goal tally to 35 although he needs another 14 to catch up with another current player – Landon Donovan – on the all time USA list.
The US stand on the brink of qualification to Brazil 2014 and Clint Dempsey has been instrumental in their recent success. At Spurs however, his role in the team remains an issue but the club’s hardest working player seems unlikely to be offloaded anytime yet.
