MOST COMMENTED

[MLS SPOTLIGHT] Landon Donovan, out of the USA's World Cup qualifying series with a hamstring strain, is back in action. He had a goal and an assist in a 33-minute appearance Monday in the Los Angeles Galaxy's 4-0 win over the Portland Timbers in an MLS Reserve League match at The Home Depot Center.

Just three minutes after coming on in the second half, Donovan and Pat Noonan linked up. Donovan split the Portland defense with a through ball and Noonan finished with his right foot.

In the 65th minute, Noonan returned the favor, collecting a Donovan pass on the left wing and then crossing the ball back into the middle for Donovan, who then finished with a volley to put the Galaxy up, 3-0.

Andrew Boyens had the first goal for the Galaxy. Teenager Jack McBean had his third goal of the Reserve League campaign on an assist from academy player Oscar Sorto, who is expected to soon sign a homegrown contract with the Galaxy.

Swedish international Christian Wilhelmsson, the Galaxy's news signing, also started.
