Clint Dempsey is currently away on national team duty, preparing for the USMNT vs Mexico World Cup qualifying match at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. Also there? Portland Timbers midfielder Darlington Nagbe. They are obviously professionals, friendly with each other as USMNT teammates. That must be why Nagbe thinks he can pull a fast one on Dempsey while he doesn’t have the bitter club team rivalry at top of mind.

He barely escapes, laughing off the almost gaffe.
