From Nacogdoches to Brazil to New York: Clint Dempsey's 2014 World Cup journey has ended under stage lights and in front of TV cameras, chatting on The Late Show with David Letterman last night, July 9.

Their talk was pretty wide ranging, from Clint's newly re-set nose to the team's goal-scoring strategy, but you'll wanna pay special attention at about 6:15 in the interview. Stand up, Nacogdoches!

Clint Dempsey, Tim Howard, and the rest of Team USA, thanks again for flying the flag and representing the United States of America so well on the world's stage. And for everybody else out there playing soccer -- look out, Team USA will see you in Russia in 2018!
