[AMERICANS ABROAD] Barring a last-minute change in plans, Landon Donovan was scheduled to fly home on Sunday after the conclusion of his 10-week loan at English club Everton, which ended in anti-climatic fashion. For the third straight game, he came off the bench, playing the last 23 minutes in the Toffees' 2-2 tie at Birmingham.

Nigerians Victor Anichebe and Ayegbeni Yakubu scored to give Everton an early 2-0 lead it could not hold on to.

But with Louis Saha injured and Anichebe having to go off late in the game, Donovan finished his run playing up front.

Afterwards, Donovan threw his shirt to adoring Everton fans.

    Unless Donovan was emitting an unusual amount of methane, I think you mean "anti-climactic", not "anti-climatic". :-) (Joke aside, thank you for providing my go-to football newsletter.)

    Thanks Joshua! You just "made my morning"
