Landon Donovan's Best MLS Goals
1. The First One
Landon Donovan made his MLS debut on April 7, 2001 in a 3-2 San Jose Earthquakes win over the LA Galaxy. But he'd have to wait six scoreless weeks before his first MLS goal, an 84th minute strike in a 2-0 win over the MetroStars. Donovan's first strike came on a breakaway, an early showcase of his speed, and was against a goalkeeper who turned out to be not half-bad himself: eventual U.S. national team stalwart Tim Howard.
