MLS Cup Final 2011, Los Angeles Galaxy Vs. Houston Dynamo Live: Landon Donovan Opens Scoring

Well finally. The Los Angeles Galaxy have been by far the better side so far in the 2011 MLS Cup Final, and they've finally gotten the goal that their play deserves. David Beckham fed Robbie Keane near the edge of the box, and Keane - who actually scored the opener only to see it wrongly disallowed - slipped in Landon Donovan to go one on one with Tally Hall.

Despite being clean through, Donovan's finish wasn't easy, since he was at an acute angle and the ball was on the wrong side of him, but the USA star flicked the ball over Tally Hall with the outside of his right boot. The goalkeeper actually got a hand to it, but he couldn't do more than slow the ball down as it floated into the back of the net. So that's the LA Galaxy 1-0 up over Houston with about fifteen minutes left to play. Can they hold on?
