Dempsey in demand

Clint Dempsey’s schedule is a whole lot busier now. Two days after his surprise move to Tottenham, the forward was included on the U.S. men’s roster Sunday for its upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Jamaica. Though Dempsey has not played a competitive match since a qualifier in June, when he scored the lone U.S. goal in a 1-1 draw at Guatemala, coach Jurgen Klinsmann wouldn’t rule out using him Friday, when the Americans play at Kingston with the top spot in Group A at stake. “We are absolutely open to throwing him in the water right away in Jamaica – if he’s really in a good physical condition and feeling really fine,” Klinsmann said on a conference call. They host the Reggae Boyz four days later in Columbus, Ohio. – AP
