On his return to the U.S. Clint Dempsey took some time off from playing soccer to chat about it instead. The USA’s captain sat down with David Letterman to talk about the World Cup campaign and all things soccer.

Appearing on the Wednesday night edition of the David Letterman Show, you can watch his appearance in full above, Dempsey came across as the cool, collected Texan we have all come to know and love.

Deuce spoke about players feigning injury, Germany’s incredible 7-1 win over Brazil, getting his nose broken at the World Cup and much, much more.

Dempsey also called U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann a “legend” and stated that he aims to keep playing until at least the age of 36. That means the three-time World Cup veteran could make it to Russia 2018. Just saying.

Also, chants of “USA! USA!” rang out around the studio as Dempsey walked onto the stage to a standing ovation. Spine-tingling.

Watch the video above to see what the Seattle Sounders star had to say for himself.
