Clint Dempsey Out for Fulham Finale

U.S. attacker and badass Texan Clint Dempsey suffered a groin injury and will miss Fulham’s final Premier League match of the 2011-12 season Sunday at Tottenham.

The Nacogdoches, Texas, native finishes the season with 23 goals across all competitions and 17 in the Premier League, numbers that add up to the best European season ever for an American outfield player.

His most recent goal, a sizzling free kick against Sunderland last weekend, lifted his career total in the Prem to 50—tops for a U.S. player.

Now the 2004 MLS Rookie of the Year will relax, reflect on a terrific season, and rehab the groin strain—in time, hopefully, for the United States’ first 2014 World Cup qualifier in one month’s time.
