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.
