Donovan Delighted To Score For The US

USA ace Landon Donovan was delighted with his goal in their 2-2 draw with Slovenia.

The US went into the halftime break 2-0 down, but rallied to keep their qualification hopes alive.

“Steve clipped a good ball down the line and the defender got caught in between and missed the ball,” said LA Galaxy star Donovan.

“From there I wanted to make sure my first touch was at the goal. As I looked up my first thought was to pass the ball, I think Benny and maybe Clint had both pulled away and their defenders stayed with them. If there had been an option across the goal, I probably would have rolled it across the goal. But in the end I decided to take a touch, aim high and aim at his head, and I don’t think he wanted to get hit from there.”
