On Air: The Official Blog of WSJU Sports

Landon Donovan and Edson Buddle returned last night to their MLS careers looked upon as hero’s. Every time either player touched the ball the crowd would erupt in chants of the players names or USA.It didn’t take long for the two to hook up for the LA Galaxy’s first goal of the match.

In the 18th minute of the game, Donovan swung a beauty of a pass into the box off a corner kick to Buddle who picked up where he left off before going to South Africa and heading the ball into the back of the net for his 10th goal of the season. Buddle who was a no show at the World Cup playing very rarely had many chances when in S. Africa to score. He couldn’t then but he could for his club team last night.

The goal of the night though had to be given to Juninho who rocked a missile 30+ feet out from the box into the upper right hand corner of the goal. A beautiful shot by the 21 year old Brazilian for his first goal of the season.

The Galaxy would go on to defeat the Seattle Sounders 3-1 and continue their dominance of the league. For Buddle and Donovan, their World Cup dreams are over for now but they still have a chance to capture a title.
