Landon Donovan

Club: San Jose Earthquakes
Position: Forward

At just 20 years of age, Donovan is the hottest new prospect in the USA.

Helped San Jose win the MLS Championship in 2001 with his electric pace and finely-tuned shooting.

Also intelligent enough to be switched to midfield and play a deeper role if required.

Scored during the February Gold Cup win over South Korea and was also on target twice in the March friendly with Honduras.

Slight in build, some question whether he will have the strength required to prove his international class.
