-- LA Galaxy (@LAGalaxy) October 6, 2013 Midfielder Gyasi Zardes made a sharp run down the left side to put a pass on Donovan's foot in the 23rd minute. Donovan then used his speed in the 41st and put a beautiful chip shot over Chivas goalie Dan Kennedy.
The 31-year-old Donovan is widely considered the best player in American history. He has won three of his five MLS Cup titles with the Galaxy.
