US Edges Paraguay 1-0 Behind Dempsey's Goal
It was Clint Dempsey's goal in the 26th minute that proved to be the game-winner for the United States. Despite playing a man down for the entire second half, the defense was able to keep Paraguay off of the score sheet.
USMNT Coach Jurgen Klinsmann spoke to ESPN FC about the win, "The old story is the underdog story, and I cannot hear that story anymore," Klinsmann said. "I want to see them risk things. Let's go for it! Because if you're not going for it, sooner or later they're going to break you down because they have class players that will give you one or two [goals]. That's the learning curve."
