[AMERICANS ABROAD] A goal by Clint Dempsey in the 77th minute started a comeback as Fulham beat League Championship (second division) Swansea City, 2-1, Tuesday night in their English FA Cup fifth-round replay and moved into the quarterfinals, where the Cottagers will host Manchester United on March 7.

Swansea took the lead two minutes after halftime on a goal by Trinidadian Jason Scotland, but Dempsey equalized with his fifth goal of the English season for Fulham when he redirected Simon Davies' corner kick into the goal.

Dempsey almost added a second goal before Bobby Zamora gave Fulham the win four minutes later with a second goal set up by Davies.

Manager Roy Hodgson called Fulham's performance one of its best of the season.
