Clint Dempsey - The Captain | MLS Insider

New, 6 comments

Clint Dempsey's best skills, goals and highlights of 2014 illustrate the words of Jurgen Klinsmann, Steve Nicol, Tony Meola, Carlos Bocanegra and others as the Texas native prepares to wear the armband for the U.S. Men's National Team in Brazil.

There's not a lot left to be said about Clint Dempsey. If you've been following his career for any amount of time, you know that he came up from humble beginnings in Texas, worked his way into MLS stardom, then to World Cup stage, onto England and finally back to MLS with the Seattle Sounders.

This MLS Insider piece doesn't spend a lot of time on that arc, though. Instead, it's simply some footage of Dempsey's best moments over the last couple seasons with former and current teammates and coaches speaking about his qualities.

While no new ground is being broken, it is clear that Dempsey has the respect of a lot of influential people. That's how he has earned the captain's armband on the United States national team and why he has reaffirmed his stardom with the Sounders.

In case you weren't excited to see what he will do in Brazil before, this should probably do the trick.
