MOST COMMENTED

[MLS REWIND: Week 12] Amid reports that he wouldn't be on Jurgen Klinsmann's national team roster being released on Thursday, Landon Donovan made a statement that he isn't quite yet finished with one goal and two assists in the last 20 minutes as the defending MLS champion Los Angeles Galaxy snapped a two-game losing streak with a 4-1 win at the Philadelphia Union.

Perhaps not so coincidentally, the game -- Donovan's 200th with the Galaxy -- also marked the return of Irish star Robbie Keane, who scored the winning goal.

All Donovan's scoring -- two goals and three assists -- this season has come in the two games Keane and he have played together.

He was also involved in the first goal as his corner kick deflected off the head of Philadelphia goalkeeperZac MacMath for an own goal.

Donovan was much more involved in the game -- completing 50 of 71 passes -- than in Saturday's 3-1 loss at Vancouver -- when he completed just 35 of 56 passes.

On both goals Donovan set up, the goal scorer was wide open but he thread the needle. He was wide open to take Keane's pass on the final goal in the 87th minute but he made a nive move to elude MacMath and score into an empty net.
