MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] Landon Donovan was subjected to chants of "U.S. reject" by some Chicago Fire fans on Sunday but got the last laugh by scoring his 137th career goal to deny the Fire a home win.

Donovan raced into to meet a low pass across the goal from Robbie Rogers and hammered it left-footed high into the goal.

Each goal Donovan scores now extends his all-time MLS regular-season scoring record, which he broke last weekend when he hit No. 135 to surpass Jeff Cunningham, who retired in 2012.

Next to Donovan, the highest scoring MLS player still active is Toronto’s Dwayne De Rosario with 103.

    LD does know how to finish. Too bad he won't be doing that for the WC team. 3 goals in past couple of games. Not too shabby for a player that's just not quite as good as some others.

    Stay classy, Chicago fans. Way to acknowledge what Donovan has done for the sport on the USMNT for three World Cups.

    Typical classy Chicago fans. Besides being a life-long soccer fan I'm a big ice hockey fan, specifically a Nashville Predators fan. We get a lot of visiting team fans in Nashville - it's a fun town to visit -- and the Blackhawk fans are, hands-down, the rudest, most obnoxious of all the other team's fans. Their chanting at LD doesn't surprise me.
