MOST COMMENTED

Landon Donovan on Wednesday appeared on the NBC Sports Network show The Dan Patrick Show, and was asked the awkward question of what he thinks of people who say they are glad the USA is now finished at the World Cup.

The former USA captain said it was “clearly unpatriotic for sure,” adding: “I think -- you see more of those comments probably than I do -- but I think it’s kind of sad. I think you’re right.
