HAMBURG (AP) - Clint Dempsey has become the first American to play in a European club soccer final.

The Fulham attacker entered in the 55th minute of Wednesday's night game against Atletico Madrid, replacing Bobby Zamora with the score 1-1.

A day earlier, the 27-year-old midfielder and forward from Nacogdoches, Texas, was selected for the 30-man preliminary U.S.

World Cup roster. He scored against Ghana in the 2006 World Cup, the only American to get a goal in the tournament.
