Donovan Breaks MLS Goals Record

Donovan Breaks MLS Goals Record

Victor Decolongon/Getty Images(CARSON, Calif.) — Just three days after being cut from the US National Team, Landon Donovan further cemented himself as America’s greatest soccer player. Donovan scored twice in a Major League Soccer contest to break the all-time regular-season goals record, helping the Los Angeles Galaxy earn a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Union.

Fans greeted the Galaxy striker with signs of encouragement, ending a week in which he did not make the 23-man roster for the upcoming World Cup. Donovan entered the match tied with Jeff Cunningham at 134 career goals. In the 41st minute he scored his first goal in four games to break the record before adding another in the 81st minute.

Donovan also owns the league record for most playoff goals with 22 and even closed in on another MLS record on Sunday. The 32-year old registered an assist on Los Angeles’ first goal of the game, giving him 120 for his career. Current Houston Dynamo assistant coach, Steve Ralston, owns the league mark of 135.

Cunningham, another former US national player, was originally born in Jamaica and played 14 seasons in the MLS with five different teams. He retired in 2011 while playing for FC Dallas. This is Donovan’s 15th season in the MLS, playing in 307 career regular season games.

Real Madrid Wins 10th Champions League Title

Laurence Griffiths/Getty Images(LISBON) — Real Madrid tied the game in the 93rd minute and then scored three times in extra time to beat Atletico Madrid 4-1 Saturday, to win their 10th Champions League title.

Atletico seemed to have the game in hand leading 1-0 in the 93rd minute, but Real’s Sergio Ramos headed in the tying goal to send the game into extra time.

“It’s the most important goal I’ve ever scored,” Ramos said. “We made history against a great rival.”

Real then took control in the second-half of extra time. Gareth Bale scored in the eventual game-winner in the 110th minute and Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo each scored after that, to give Real its first UCL title since 2002.
