How has Landon Donovan's 10-week loan to Everton gone? Better than anyone could have expected. On Sunday at Everton's Goodison Park, with U.S. coach Bob Bradley in attendance, the American midfielder had a goal and an assist in a 5--1 win over Hull City, then ran what looked like a farewell lap to chants of U-S-A! Donovan, who turned 28 last week, is expected to return to the Galaxy on March 15 for the start of the MLS season unless there is a players' strike. "Assuming today's the last home game, you want it to end that way," said Donovan (below), who added that his successful stint had given him increased confidence for the U.S.'s World Cup opener on June 12 against England.
