Dempsey and U.S. humble Italy in Genoa

GENOA, Italy (Reuters) - Clint Dempsey fired the United States to a 1-0 friendly win over Italy Wednesday to leave the Azzurri's Euro 2012 plans in further disarray.

He netted 10 minutes into the second half after good work from Jozy Altidore in a largely deserved victory for Juergen Klinsmann's visitors.

Italy had a new look attack given Antonio Cassano and Giuseppe Rossi are facing a race to be fit for June's Euros while Mario Balotelli was omitted from the squad for continued on-field disciplinary problems.
