Clint Dempsey gets bloody nose after being kicked in face (GIF)

Just minutes after the US lost striker Jozy Altidore to what looked like a hamstring injury, Clint Dempsey was booted directly in the face by a high kick. Dempsey, another American striker, was left with a bloody nose and briefly left the field. He quickly returned.

No foul was called on the play, which infuriated Dempsey and US coach Jurgen Klinsmann. That was obviously a dangerous play that should have resulted in a whistle at the very least, if not a yellow card.

Dempsey gave the US an early 1-0 lead over Ghana less than two minutes in. The Americans paid a steep price for the goal from a physical standpoint.
