Landon Timothy Donovan (born March 4, 1982) is an American soccer player who plays for Los Angeles Galaxy in Major League Soccer. He plays usually as a withdrawn forward, and can also be used as an attacking midfielder on either wing.
A member of the inaugural class of the U.S. Soccer residency program in Bradenton, Florida, Donovan was declared player of the tournament for his role in the national U-17 team that finished fourth in the 1999 FIFA U-17 World Championship, before signing for Bayer Leverkusen. After six years with the club, the majority of which was spent on loan at the San Jose Earthquakes, Donovan moved to the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2005, though he returned to the Bundesliga for a three-month spell at the start of 2009 on loan to Bayern Munich.
For the United States national team, Donovan is the all-time leader in scoring and assists, and has the most caps of all active players. He is a three-time winner of the U.S. Soccer Male Athlete of the Year award (including the only male to win in consecutive years), as well as the only six-time winner of the Honda Player of the Year award.
