"Clint is special. And he showed that tonight, he showed it the last couple weeks, he showed it his entire career. So when he was not there for a couple of times -- that's why we wanted to bring some
youngsters out there and give them a go -- I always had a great relationship with him, and he was right there where he should be. And this performance tonight from him was unbelievable."
-- U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann
on Clint Dempsey
, who scored one goal and set up the other in the USA's 2-1 win over Ecuador in the Copa Centenario quarterfinals.
