Landon Donovan played & scored v Mexico whilst having severe pink eye [Pictures & Tweets]
- September 11, 2013
It was obvious the moment first shone on American striker Landon Donovan that all was not right with the LA Galaxy forward against Mexico.
The United States confirmed their place at the 2014 World Cup by beating Mexico 2-0 on Tuesday night, and Landon Donovan was one of the heroes scoring the crucial second goal after Eddie Johnson has broken the deadlock early in the second half.
Amazingly, Donovan achieved his success against Mexico whilst having a severe case pink eye. Donovan’s dodgy face was an immediate source of chatter on Twitter.
Below are a series of tweets on Landon Donovan’s severe pink eye.
Love the toughness by Landon Donovan to still compete in the match despite having severe pink eye! #builtfordtough
