The American says that football is a cruel game...
Donovan admits that the Americans were a little "naive tonight" and that is what cost them.
"We were a little naive tonight and at this level you can't do that," said Donovan to Eurosport after the match. "It is frustrating considering all the work we have put in.
"I'm proud of what the team has done. Football is a cruel game sometimes."
"One minute you are on top of the world, the next minute you are at the bottom of the mountain," he added.
