Donovan ties MLS goals mark
Landon Donovan scored twice in the first half for Los Angeles, tying Jeff Cunningham’s MLS career goals record in the Galaxy’s 5-0 victory over Chivas USA yesterday.
Donovan has 134 regular-season goals, passing second-place Jaime Moreno (133) and matching Cunningham’s total. The Galaxy’s home crowd gave a warm halftime ovation to Donovan, who’s likely to reign high atop the list in the coming years.
“If this had happened earlier in my career, I would have thought about it more,” Donovan said. “But we’re in a playoff race right now, so for us, it’s about winning. But at halftime, it hit me, and I realized it. I’ll sit and think about it at some point, but for now, I want to keep going.”
