LA Galaxy attacker Donovan ignoring lack of goals

LA Galaxy attacker Landon Donovan says he no longer judges his form on goals.

Donovan, now 32, owns the USMNT's record for goals (57) and assists (58) and is second on MLS's career assists list with 117, 18 off Steve Ralston's record.

"I'm in a different phase. I don't judge how I play based on if I score," the former Everton star told mlssoccer.com. "I mean, I've played a lot of bad games in my life where I score a goal, and you feel like, 'Oh, I'm great,' but I'd rather continue to play well and not score, if that's what happens.

"I think for myself, I deserve to score. I deserve to get myself in good position to score, so hopefully it happens this weekend."
