Clint Dempsey misses goal on great play in extra time (Video)

Clint DempseyThe United States’ best chance at scoring the equalizer against Belgium in extra time of their World Cup match Tuesday came on an excellent play on a free kick.

The US drew up a sick play on a free kick and had Jermaine Jones fake like he was going to touch the ball. Instead, Michael Bradley passed to Chris Wondolowski, who passed through Belgium’s defense to an open Clint Dempsey. Thibaut Courtois came out to cut down the angle and made a great stop on Dempsey’s attempt at the goal, and the US was unable to capitalize.

It was a great play and huge chance for the US, but they were unable to convert, keeping the score at 2-1.

Now Belgium will advance to the quarterfinals for the first time since 1986. They are unbeaten in their last 14 competitive matches.
