American Leads Team To English Premier League

Jay DeMerit shakes off his marker to head home Ashley Young's 25th-minute corner to give the Hornets the lead (BBC)

Not the American we thought was going to the Premier League, though. Eddie Lewis, probable starter for the US World Cup team, and his Leeds squad went down to defeat against Watford yesterday, 0-3. Jay DeMerit, an unheralded 26-year old American who went to England three years ago with the proceeds of a summer job in his pocket, scored Watford's first goal and was named Man of the Match. Congratulations Jay!

Maybe now Bruce Arena will call DeMerit up for the national team squad? He's never even been capped.
