Football News > Winning Dempsey Strike Debuts Nike Mercurial Superfly II

When Nike unveiled the new Mercurial Superfly II, they did so with the tag line "Write the Future". Barely three weeks later, Fulham and USMNT star Clint Dempsey has done just that - both with the winning strike for the Cottagers and the debut of the Nike Mercurial Superfly II football boots.


'Deuce' was introduced from the bench as Fulham fought back from a 3-1 first leg defeat to level the tie at 4-4 on aggregate. We were anticipating the upcoming weekend's action to be our first official sighting of the new football boots, rather than the UEFA Europa League, but with their distinctive ultra-violet and orange colour combination the Superfly II's stand out from even the back of the Craven Cottage stands.



With the tie levelled at 4-4 on aggregate, Dempsey collected the ball on the edge of the area and produced a stunning chip that floated over Juventus 'keeper Chimenti into the far top-corner of the net. Cue delirium from the striker and the home crowd, meaning the Cottagers dumped out the Old Lady and continue to live their dream and advance to the quarter finals of the Europa League.



We're sure Dempsey will have plenty of more opportunity to 'Write the Future' this season, and into the World Cup. But we're keeping our eyes firmly peeled as to who will be on the next big name footballer sporting the new Superfly II boots...

Although I like dempsey alot, i agree with ae013, it shouldve been Cristiano Ronaldo debuting them, besides they were made on especially for him

March 19, 2010 11:43 AM

M1K3R1 said:

the reason why Dempsey debuted the boots and not Ronaldo is becuz nike is an american company and Dempsey is an american player. also dempsey is a very underrated player he should get more credit for what he does

Great Player no doubt. Way to go Dempsey! :D Boots are alright. I just really am not liking the instep with the black. But hey, the color has nothing to do with how well it performs. Great job Dempsey and great job Nike.
