Clint Dempsey might have to wear a mask

His nose is broken, so there may need to be protection. What type of mask should he wear?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Clint Dempsey did in fact break his nose. It was rather obvious if you watched the slow-mo replay (shown about a dozen times). There is not going to be surgery. It's just something minor.

Dempsey could wear a protective mask on Sunday as the USA look to move to 2-0 in the group stages, but no decision has been made on that just yet.

A mask you say?

Clint do not go with one of those weak masks like Lebron wore this year. Be bold. Declare yourself. Brazilian commentators called you Thor for goodness sake.


That would protect you quite well. Plus if Portugal gets all Pepe on you that dude would get hurt.

Too much, want something a bit more subtle? Channel your inner Clooney.


Or maybe you can take a mask idea from your new home.



That may not work well for soccer. But it would kick some serious ass.

Maybe you should just go without the mask... these aren't good ideas.
