Clint Dempsey scores Ronaldo like free-kick in stunning performance

Clint Dempsey USA

The former Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham man has been in top form for Seattle Sounders recently.

In August of last year Tottenham Hotspur sold Clint Dempsey back to MLS in a deal worth $9 million and the USMNT star struggled to settle back into the swing of things in his homeland with new club Seattle Sounders.

The 31-year-old has recently looked back to his best - seemingly revitalised from a loan spell back at Fulham, which itself was uninspiring.

He bagged a goal against Toronto FC. But he suffered another setback after that game when he was given a two game suspension for slapping Mark Bloom in the.

Last weekend he returned to action - and in some style.

He scored a terrific hat-trick in a 4-4 draw with Portland Timbers - including a late leveller.

And last night he was at it again.

He was the hero for Seattle in a 3-2 win against FC Dallas - bagging two and playing a major part in the other goal.

He opened the scoring with his most sensational effort yet for Seattle. He lined up a 35-yard free-kick in the style of Cristiano Ronaldo and smashed a ball into the net via the underside of the crossbar.

It was a stunning effort - but he was not done there.

His cross-shot was turned away by an opponent to level things up in the second half before he himself snatched a late winner.

Dempsey certainly looks to be back to his best!

Should Spurs have held on to Dempsey?
