Clint Dempsey’s international future very much in doubt

Sounder at Heart at related • 2 views

This was almost certainly his final meaningful match for the USMNT.

With the United States needing a goal to secure a spot in the World Cup, it somehow made sense that it was Clint Dempsey who came closest to scoring it. The width of the goalpost was all the separated Dempsey from scoring a record-breaking goal when his country needed it most.

It will take years for the answers to be apparent.

With the United States failing to qualify for the World Cup there are many questions swirling around the game in the USA. Some won't be answered for about five years, others will be answered in months. Some are difficult and will impact the game in this nation for decades.

International break didn't turn out to be quite as busy for the Sounders as expected.

This international break was shaping up to be a busy one for the Seattle Sounders, with a record nine players called up to their respective national teams. In the end, though, it wasn't all that.

Only Joevin Jones (Trinidad & Tobago) started in two games, while Oniel Fisher (Jamaica), Roman Torres (Panama) Clint Dempsey (United States) and Jordan Morris (USA) were the only others to even start one.

The concept of the Ideal XI is platonic. It's like a perfect triangle. It only exists in our thoughts, our minds. As we so carefully craft strawmen as simulacrums of real conversation, we continue to ignore that the Seattle Sounders have more playoff-quality starters than they do positions on the field.

Form is vital when it comes to the international game. Given the nature of international soccer, chemistry is always tough to come by, and that extra little bit of personal confidence can go a long way.

SEATTLE, Wash. — If Clint Dempsey keeps scoring like this and the defense keeps pitching shutouts, the Seattle Sounders are going to be pretty darn hard to beat.

Dempsey scored his team-leading 10th goal of the season and the Sounders posted their fourth straight shutout — running their streak to 400 consecutive minutes without allowing a goal — and at least temporarily moved to the top of the Western Conference standings courtesy of their 1-0 win over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday.

If you've been following the U.S. Men's National Team for the last few years, Tuesday's failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup isn't a total surprise.

The steps that were taken since the round of 16 loss to Belgium in Brazil set the USMNT up for failure in the long term.

There's a myriad of issues you could point at from keeping Jurgen Klinsmann around after Brazil for another World Cup cycle to not giving enough chances to the new generation of stars that goes far beyond Christian Pulisic.

Sounders looked completely lost until Dempsey entered game.

The fun, apparently, wasn't meant to last.

As good as the Seattle Sounders looked in their midweek clash with the Vancouver Whitecaps, they were equally as bad in the first half against the Philadelphia Union. The Sounders didn't take a single shot, rarely looked remotely dangerous and were probably lucky to go into halftime only trailing 1-0.

Sounders forward could certainly be better, but the blaming is starting to get out of hand.

In the scope of a single season, 13 games is a pretty big chunk. In fact, it's nearly 40 percent of the season. So it almost goes without saying that a unbeaten streak that has stretched that long is impressive.
