Dempsey out of Fulham’s Europa League quarterfinal

United States foward Clint Dempsey will miss the second leg of
Fulham’s Europa League quarterfinal at Wolfsburg on Thursday
because of a thigh injury.

Fulham beat Wolfsburg 2-1 in the first leg last week. Dempsey
was hurt in Sunday’s Premier League win over Wigan.

Dempsey’s injury means Erik Nevland may play up front alongside
Zoltan Gera, because first-choice Bobby Zamora is struggling with
an Achilles’ injury and David Elm is ill.
