USA Vs. Scotland: Landon Donovan Scores Three Minutes In

Landon Donovan went nine months without playing for the United States as injuries and other reasons kept him away from the team. Finally today, the Americans' all-time is back with the national team and it took him just three minutes to make his presence fault as he scored to put the U.S. up 1-0 on Scotland.

The goal came at the end of a good move for the U.S. Eventually, Donovan was in on goal, but he had to shoot quickly because the goalkeeper was rushing out on him. The keeper saved the first shot, but Donovan got to the rebound and was able to finish his second chance despite two Scots on the line that made things tough.

Jurgen Klinsmann is going to be thrilled with the goal as it came at the end of the type of good midfield play that he's been trying to build. Early on, it's looking good for the U.S.
