Donovan Torn About How to Watch the World Cup

MOST COMMENTED

Landon Donovan made a guest appearance on The Dan Patrick Show on NBCSN in which he talked about how he would take in the 2014 World Cup after USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann decided to drop him from his final 23-man roster. When Patrick asked where he would watch the tournament, the LA Galaxy midfielder replied: “Part of me just wants to sit on my couch and sit there and let the emotions go one way or the other so I am not around anybody. And part of me wants to go to a bar and have a few beers and watch with local soccer fans and experience it all that way. I don't know. It will probably be a game-time decision."

Of course, there is still the small possibility that one of the USA’s 23 players is injured ahead of the start of the tournament, in which case Donovan said he would be ready to return to the squad if called upon. In ESPN's behind-the-scenes documentary, "Inside: U.S. Soccer's March to Brazil," Klinsmann said Donovan is "the first in line to get another call" if one of the team's four forwards is injured.
