US beats Italy 1-0 in Friendly


On a Clint Dempsey goal in Italy!

The Americans have been competitive on the world stage for years, but they do not often beat elite teams. They did so Wednesday, courtesy of a second-half goal by Clint Dempsey that was just the fifth scored by the United States against Italy in the 78 years since they began playing each other.

Pretty BFD and solid set up to Dempsey from Jozy Altidore. I hope this means the team is beginning to become comfortable with Klinsmann’s system.
