British soccer star is a Texan who looks to Heaven after each goal he scores

Clint Dempsey is one of two Americans ever to score in two World Cups. He's the only American to score an English Premier League hat trick. And he has a quiet ritual of a brother's eternal love.

Great article but.......spoilt by the fact that the author doesn't seem to know the fact that there is a world of difference between 'English' and 'British'. True anyway but especially true when it comes to soccer. There are 4 distinctly separate countries that make up the entirely political entity called 'Britain'. Each of those 4 nations represent themselves in international soccer competitions, have their own soccer federations and their own, entirely separate, domestic leagues. the author trying to tell us that Clint Dempsey is such a busy man that he plays in all of them ? Or should we just ourselves substitute the word 'British' for 'English' every time it appears in the article ?
