Watch: Clint Dempsey scores USA's go-ahead goal against Portugal
Against Ghana, Clint Dempsey did it early. Against Portugal the USA captain left his heroics for late.
20-year-old DeAndre Yedlin, in his World Cup debut off the bench, carried deep down the right channel before firing in a cross. It was deflected out to Michael Bradley, who fed Graham Zusi, the provider on John Brooks' winner against Ghana. Again, Zusi made the right play, picking out an onside Dempsey in the center of the box. After peering back to see his defender and make sure he was onside, Dempsey redirected the cross with his hip before being mobbed by his teammates.
