PLAYERS: Landon Donovan
The Los Angeles Galaxy say Landon Donovan will rejoin the team during the final week of March after a break of almost four months. The 30-year-old midfielder and forward, a veteran of three World Cups with the United States, had said last fall he was uncertain whether he wanted to continue playing. Donovan has a team-record 92 goals during eight seasons with the Galaxy, who have won the last two Major League Soccer titles. He has a record 49 goals in 144 appearances for the United States. Los Angeles opens its MLS title defense when it hosts Chicago on March 3, and then plays four days later at Costa Rica's Herediano in the first leg of the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals. The team made the announcement Sunday.
