What They're Saying: Landon Donovan
June 11th, 2014 11PM

TAGS:  landon donovan, men's national team


"This will come as a surprise to nobody, but I don't agree with Jurgen. And as someone who has been in that locker room and has sat next to the players, we agree with the American Outlaws: We believe that we will win. I think that's the way Americans think and I think that's the sentiment."

-- Landon Donovan, in his debut on ESPN's pre-World Cup coverage, disagreeing with Coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who repeated on Wednesday his assertion that it is not realistic to say that the USA has a chance to win the World Cup.
