LA Galaxy pair Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan face eachother today in England.

Keane will make his debut for Aston Villa against Donovan's Everton.

Keane, 31, told The Sun: "Landon will do well at Everton, like he did a couple of years ago.

"He has a good relationship with David Moyes. We've played well together at Galaxy and I look forward to seeing him."

Donovan said: "Robbie's a great player. I remember the first day he came out there, watching him pass the ball — I was really impressed.

"The pass he gave me for the goal in the final was fantastic, absolutely world class."

Keane added: "I've been exchanging texts with him this week.

"I laid on a goal for him in the MLS final — but I won't be helping out this time!"
