Landon Timothy Donovan currently holds the record for most goals and assists for U.S. National Football Team.

Landon was already destined for greatness. In his first competitive game playing against older players, he scored seven (7) goals! At age 17, he was already in the US football training pool.

He went to Germany bringing with him his potential, and signed up for Bayern Leverkusen, but his time there was a disappointment for his young career. He was sent back to the US, in MLS on loan to the San Jose Earthquakes. He became an instant hit and went on to score 32 goals in his two year stint with the American club.

In 2005, he was traded to L.A. Galaxy, and still playing for them up to this time. He also had loan spells, Bayern Munich in Germany, and Everton in the English Premier League. His purpose was to continue his form.

It would take a long time for another American to match or do better Landon Donovan’s achievements. Jozy Altidore and Freddie Adu are out of the question.
