Clint Dempsey’s Diary

My biggest dream was playing in the World Cup. I had played in a U-20 youth championship where I only got on the field for 15 minutes or so, then I got my chance to go to World Cup in 2006. After the first game with the Czech Republic, when I didn’t get to play, I was thinking, “Here we go again, another World Cup where I’ll hardly get to see the pitch.” I really just wanted a chance to be on the field and prove myself. I killed myself during training to show the coach that all I wanted was a shot at accomplishing my dream. Before the Italy match I got the news that I’d be starting, and I just wanted to make sure that I took advantage of that moment.

We got a draw in that game and after playing well I got a chance to make my second start against Ghana. So there I was, starting two of three games in the World Cup when I didn’t think I was going to feature after I didn’t even see the field in the first match. Being able to score a goal against Ghana was the ultimate dream for me. It’s my favorite goal and my favorite memory in my football career. Being in a World Cup and scoring a goal, that’s when I knew I had arrived, that I had made it. That’s when I knew anything was possible. In my mind, that was a dream come true and I knew I could die a happy man because everything after that would be icing on the cake.
