USA Vs. Canada, Gold Cup 2011: Landon Donovan Trying To Set Gold Cup Scoring Record

Landon Donovan is already the United States' all-time leading scorer and now he might become the leading scorer in CONCACAF Gold Cup history. Former Mexican strike Luis Roberto Alves or "Zaguinho" was the tournament's all-time leading scorer with 12 goals in Gold Cup play, but Donovan equaled him in 2007 when he scored a penalty in the final. Now, he enters the 2011 tournament one goal away from becoming the outright leader in goals in CONCACAF's championship tournament.

Any betting man would have to put money on Donovan scoring a goal to become the all-time tournament leading goalscorer. The American has played in four previous Gold Cups, scoring in each and leading or co-leading the tournament in scoring twice. With the U.S. considered one of the two favorites to win the tournament, Donovan should get at least six matches to notch the record-setting goal, beginning Tuesday night against Canada and ending at the final on June 25, if the U.S. makes it that far.
