USMNT ROUTS GUATEMALA IN TUNER FOR GOLD CUP
Landon Donovan returned to the US National Team just in time to spark a 6-0 rout of Guatemala in a warm up match before the CONCACAAF Gold Cup. The US will open in Group C against Belize on July 9.
Donovan, who had not played on the national team since the USA’s historic 1-0 victory against Mexico on Aug. 15, 2012, at Estadio Azteca, scored two goals in the rout. The blowout was the biggest since the U.S. beat Barbados 8-0 in 2008.
Donovan’s two goals during the game made him the first USA player to reach and surpass 50 goals. Donovan is also second on the number of matches played.
