Do you miss Landon Donovan? We bet you do. Be sad no more, then, because Donovan is returning to the United States in March to play a friendly for Club León against his old club, the San Jose Earthquakes. This is a good opportunity for both clubs to open themselves up to new potential fan markets.

For a little bit people thought Donovan was already on his way back to Major League Soccer (he is in his first season with León in Liga MX), but San Jose cleared things up.

Donovan made his competitive debut for Club León on Saturday, coming on in the 83rd minute of León's 2-1 win against Puebla. So far, Donovan's second un-retirement is going better than his first, but there's (hopefully) a lot of soccer to be played.
