U.S. rallying behind Clint Dempsey, national team before World Cup

Captain Clint Dempsey and the U.S. men's national team are ready to 'Do More' this summer at the World Cup in Brazil. 

Actor Jon Hamm of AMC’s Mad Men directed a new short film featuring Dempsey, who scored in the USA's 2-1 win over Turkey on Sunday, and the U.S. leading into this month's competition in Brazil. Hamm's film highlights the captain's training and dedication, as well as the U.S. fans' support of the team.

This summer's worldwide spectacle kicks off on June 12, when Brazil meets Croatia at Arena de Sao Paulo. U.S. fans can look forward to the Americans' World Cup opener against Ghana at Estadio das Dunas in Natal on June 16.
