Clint Dempsey, we salute you for this magnificent spinning nutmeg

Hopefully Anthony Pilkington is still taking notes.

WE’LL FORGIVE YOU for skipping yesterday’s friendly between the USA and Turkey to do something a bit more worthwhile with your bank holiday Sunday… but just so you know, you missed some silky skills.

We’ve already shown you the Michael Bradley pass and Fabian Johnson finish that gave America the lead.

Now it’s time to marvel at this delicious spinning nutmeg by Clint Dempsey who made Hakan Balta look a little bit foolish.

If you want to fully deconstruct it, we’d probably call it “a drag-back-spin-outside-of-the-boot-flick-nutmeg” but there’s no need to get technical about such beauty.


Fab Johnson effort shows just how you go about stuffing Turkey
