LONDON – Clint Dempsey returned to haunt Robert Green in their first meeting since the England goalkeeper's World Cup blunder, scoring in Fulham's 1-1 draw at West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.
Unlike his pitiful attempt to stop the U.S. midfielder's weakly hit long shot in South Africa, Green couldn't be blamed for Dempsey's 33rd-minute goal on a left-footed volley from 12 yards.
Frederic Piquionne scored the tying goal for West Ham in the 51st minute at Upton Park.
Also, Manchester United was held to a scoreless tie with Sunderland. United played to a second straight draw in the league, squandering a chance to pull even with Chelsea before the leaders play Arsenal on Sunday.
