US vs Honduras: USA Men’s Team Must Persevere Without Landon Donovan

The US men's national soccer team is not complete without Landon Donovan.

He has been the feature player and face of this team for years now, and without him the USA men just don't seem whole.

Sure, I'm assuming they will be just fine without Donovan in their upcoming exhibition game against Honduras on Saturday, but they aren't going to be the same team.

Donovan is not only the leader of this team, but he is the spark-plug.

If there's a big play that changed the course of the game, either Donovan scored it, or he somehow played an integral part in making it happen.

He sees the field like almost nobody in the sport can, and he knows exactly what to do in any situation.

If you're wide open in scoring position, Donovan is going to find you. If you're passing it to him and hoping for the big play, chances are that he will make it.

Donovan is the heartbeat of this team, but he won't be for long.
