Dempsey out of USA lineup due to groin soreness

U.S. Soccer has just announced that Sounder Clint Dempsey has been pulled from tonight's starting lineup due to what ESPN2 is calling groin soreness.

In a halftime interview, coach Jurgen Klinsmann said Dempsey "is all right" and the issues should be behind him in "two or three days."

Chris Wondolowski of San Jose moved into Dempsey's starting role.

The game is being shown on ESPN2.
