Galaxy coach expects 2014 World Cup to be Landon Donovan's last
Donovan's current club coach and former national team coach expects the star to cease international play after the 2014 World Cup.
Landon Donovan provided perhaps the most dramatic play in this United States soccer history at the 2010 World Cup, scoring a late goal against Algeria which pushed the U.S. through to the knockout rounds.
But now, three years later, Donovan may be approaching his final international appearance.
Bruce Arena, Donovan's coach with the Los Angeles Galaxy, told the Washington Post last week that Donovan appears to be prepared to close out his international career after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
"He is getting better, he is feeling better, and he is positioned to end his international career in the right way — in Brazil for the World Cup — and finish out his club career near his home," Arena said. "He moved it along the way he envisioned.”
Of course, this is just conjecture from Arena, though Donovan is certainly approaching an age at which many players choose to end their international careers.
Donovan, who will be 32 after the competition next year, has played in three World Cups already, and, with 57 international goals, is currently the national team's all-time top scorer.
