It goes without saying, but, to state the obvious, Landon Donovan is the best U.S. Men’s soccer player of all time. Accolades and awards aside, Dononvan has been the face of the team for more than a decade and has featured in every major USMNT moment of the twenty-fisrt century (Quarterfinal run in South Korea, Confed Cup Final in ’09, Algeria Goal at 2010 World Cup, coutnless “Dos a Cero” games, etc…). Donovan’s career acheivements, which include USMNT all-time leader in caps (156), goals (57), assists (58), MLS all-time leader in goals (144) and assists (136), and 5-time MLS Cup Champion, will never be broken. Take a few minutes to watch this brilliantly made video documenting Donovan’s legacy with the USMNT.
The first transcendent American soccer star. Thanks for the memories, Landon!
