The U.S. men’s national team is on a tear unlike anything veteran Landon Donovan has ever seen, and Donovan, who has played in three World Cups and scored more goals and registered more assists than any player in U.S. history, has seen a lot. "I've never been part of a run like this," the L.A. Galaxy playmaker said of the USA’s current run, which includes 22 goals in five consecutive wins. "It's a lot of fun, not only the goals, but we're creating lots of chances and that's enjoyable." Donovan, by the way, has been directly involved in exactly half of the team’s impressive tally, scoring five goals and adding six more assists.
"There's really good chemistry in this group," the 31-year-old said. "For whatever reason, it's a group that's come together really well and meshed really well. And we understand each other. There's been a lot of different combinations, a lot of different lineups. But the guys sort of understand their roles very well and we've all sort of fit together seamlessly." The USA plays Honduras in the Gold Cup semifinal later today.
