"I'm trying to play each game to get an opportunity to play the next one and I think if my performances keep getting better then I have an opportunity to be a part of this team long term, which is my goal."
-- U.S. star Landon Donovan, who set up Brek Shea's goal in the USA's 1-0 win over Costa Rica on Tuesday. Donovan returned to national team on the eve of the Gold Cup after taking a sabbatical that kept him out of the national team for the first six games of the final round of 2014 World Cup qualifying. He's scored four goals and made two assists since his return. (USSoccer.com)
