FIFA: Dempsey goal at 30 seconds

RIO DE JANEIRO -- FIFA has officially timed Clint Dempsey's goal at 30 seconds into the United States' 2-1 victory over Ghana on Monday in Natal.

McIntyre on Brooks: Dream come true
Jones: U.S. prevails
Carlisle: U.S. grades
McIntyre: U.S. hold off Ghana

With that time, Dempsey becomes the fifth fastest scorer in World Cup history.

The goal was initially timed at 29 seconds before being confirmed at one second later by FIFA on Tuesday.

The only faster goals at a World Cup were by Turkey's Hakan Suker (11 seconds against South Korea in 2002), Czechoslovakia's Vaclav Masek (16 seconds against Mexico in 1962), Germany's Ernst Lehner (25 seconds against Austria in 1934), and England's Bryan Robson (27 seconds against France in 1982).

Dempsey also became the first American to score in three World Cups.

Dempsey suffered a fracture to his nose during Monday's win.
