Landon Donovan Announces Retirement From National Soccer Team

LOS ANGELES - After Mexico was knocked out of the 2018 World Cup, former Club Leon substitute Landon Donovan announced his retirement from supporting the national soccer team.

"This story has ended. We gave it our everything until the end," the former Liga MX midfielder told reporters after the match.

"It was a crazy match, in which we didn't start well but we recovered and we turned it around. But their second goal did so much damage to us. It cost us so much to lift ourselves up again. From this point on I will be just another fan. It is over. The illusion is shattered."

The 36-year-old played a full 1 minute in the commercial for Wells Fargo which marked his biggest commercial of the year.

Donovan, who played in six games for Club Leon, made his debut for the Mexican side in 2018. In his time with his side, Donovan failed to win a major tournament.

The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Donovan un-retires to support the United States during the Gold Cup as Mexican fans feel the full betrayal of his legacy.
