Landon Donovan is back. Landon Donovan is back. Wake up Lost Boys, like the Pan, the Golden Boy is back. He’s 35 now and this might be a jersey selling gimmick, but IDGAF. What was once dismissed as a hoax is now reality: Club Leon are saying it. Landon Donovan is saying it. Christian Pulisic, a weight is lifted. Landon Donovan is back.

Presidente: me encantó la Ciudad. Es la mejor afición. @clubleonfc es un equipo histórico y ganador. No creo en los muros, quiero ir a México, vestirme de verde y ganar trofeos con León. Nos vemos muy pronto! https://t.co/Xqm4jX2hW7— Landon Donovan (@landondonovan) January 13, 2018
You can’t help but think of rifled finishes against Slovenia, the embers roaring back to life against Algeria and the bedeviled possession of a 20-year-old phenom laying waste to the vaunted defenses of Portugal and Mexico. Landon Donovan is back, and we'll never grow old.
Here's the last goal he scored in professional soccer. It's with the LA Galaxy in 2016.
UPDATE: Legends never die.
