Landon Donovan is, arguably, the best American player in the history of soccer, not only domestically, but internationally.

By way of a disclaimer, I only root for Donovan when he's wearing the red, white and blue. When he's playing for the L.A. Galaxy (and before that with the San Jose Earthquakes), Donovan always finds a way to be a thorn in my team's side.
