Congrats to the USA soccer team who rocked the nation with a thrilling victory over Ghana in their first World Cup 2014 game.

The opening goal from Clint Dempsey was the quickest an American has ever scored in the finals. Dempsey stroked the ball in after just 32 seconds of the match.

In honor of Dempsey’s magnificent strike, here’s Clint, aka, the Deuce in rap mode from 2006.

And if you recognized one of the ESPN soccer pundits as a former Grunge muso, you’d not be wrong. Check out USA defender Alexei Lalas rockin’ on Italian TV back in the mid ‘90s when he played for Serie A club Padova.
