Clint Dempsey led his United States team to a crucial win in their World Cup opener Monday night, netting the first goal in a 2-1 win over Ghana.
And whilst he will be hoping to extent his countries stay in Brazil for as long as possible, the USMNT captain has big plans for when the tournament comes to an end.
Dempsey will be releasing a new rap album in the coming months.
This will not be the former Fulham and Tottenham player's first foray into the world of music however, with Dempsey having already put his name to one previous rap album - performing under the name 'Deuce'.
As reported by The Guardian, Dempsey recorded the album, entitled 'The Redux', in a two week period leading up to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, enlisting the help of rapper XO with whom he had worked with on a previous track prior to the 2006 World Cup.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal Dempsey revealed how the record came about:
"We just were having fun with it and it ended up being an album," the ... year-old explained.
Apparently topics under discussion in the future album include his role as 'Captain America' as well as his goal-scoring exploits.
Keeping World Cup focus
The Texas native has long been known to be a keen rapper, with his teammates and friends alike describing how Dempsey would always be liable to start freestyling.
The US captain is far from the first high profile athlete to venture into the music business however, with a long list of illustrious names having gone before him.
Following an impressive display for the US on Monday night it looks like his second career hasn't been too distracting to this point, and Dempsey himself will be keen to keep the focus on Sunday's key clash with Portugal as Jurgen Klinsmann's team look to qualify from Group D.
Perhaps Dempsey's most famous track to date was 'Don't Tread' which the soccer star released in 2006 in collaboration with Nike.
