As I am sure all fans of football in America are now aware, Clint Dempsey, the most recognizable and successful United States outfield player in Europe has suffered a potentially devestating injury in today’s Fulham loss to Blackburn. Dempsey, who only minutes earlier had hit the crossbar with a spectacular bicycle kick suffered a potential ACL or MCL tear. A full scan will reveal the details tomorrow, but Fulham Manager Roy Hodgson is not hopeful.

“Clint will be scanned tomorrow, but we feel it might be a posterior cruciate knee ligament, which would be very bad for us and he would be out for a while,” Fulham manager Roy Hodgson said. “It’s a concern up front because Clint Dempsey is very useful for us.” (From BBC Sport)
