LA Galaxy ace Donovan thrilled with current state of USA team

Landon Donovan has been extremely pleased with the way the USA side has gelled during the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The US are into the semi-final where they will meet Honduras in Dallas on Wednesday and the manner in which they have progressed to the final four has not been lost on LA Galaxy star Donovan.

"We're getting more and more comfortable and the beauty of it is, we can score and create chances in a lot of different ways," he said after Sunday's 5-1 victory over El Salvador.

"Obviously our set pieces have been very good. When we move the ball quickly and break teams down through the middle of the field, we've had chances that way. We've done a very good job of getting chances wide, in getting crosses in the box. Counterattacks, we're getting chances. So we're scoring in all different ways."

The USA's results in the competition thus far have been a 6-1 win over Belize, a 4-1 victory over Cuba, a 1-0 triumph over Coast Rica and the quarter-final win against the Salvadorans.
