Landon Donovan grabbed his first goal for Club Leon since coming out of retirement for the second time, and it of course came in a friendly game at his former club the San Jose Earthquakes.

Of course it did.

Donovan, 36, swiveled and hit a low shot past Andrew Tarbell in the first half to seal a 1-0 win for the Liga MX club in a game which was set up to give both teams a run-out during the international break.

Of course, Donovan playing on U.S. soil for the first time since his latest return to the game was also a big draw for fans as the former San Jose star (who won two MLS Cups with the franchise) captained Club Leon and scored the game-winner.

What’s that you say, LD should return to the USMNT and come out of international retirement too?

Watch Donovan roll back the years at Avaya Stadium, as the U.S. national team legend scored the only goal of the game.
