Clint Dempsey has given the United States the best start they could have possibly asked for against Ghana, scoring exactly 29 seconds into the game to put the United States up 1-0 early.
The US has been a force in the midfield early with the same 4-3-2-1 formation they used against Nigeria, and once they won the ball, they’ve gotten down the field lightning fast.
Dempsey’s move was outstanding, putting on a one-two to leave Boye in his dust.
The goal was the fastest goal of the 2014 World Cup so far, and according to Opta statistics, the fifth-fastest goal in World Cup history.
