Clint Dempsey had quite the start to the U.S. World Cup campaign in Brazil.

Inside the first minute, Dempsey scored a fine goal to put the United States ahead early against Ghana.

Midway through the half he took this nasty kick to the face from John Boye, drawing blood.

All-action American hero.
