Team USA Castoff Takes To Broadcast Booth For World Cup

By Jim McCoy Wed 11th June SportsESPNLandon DonavanWorld Cup
ESPN has hired Landon Donovan to offer commentary on the U.S. soccer team he was cut from just before the World Cup. The all-time U.S. leader in goals and assists, the 32-year-old Donovan was dropped last month in a highly debated move by coach Jurgen Klinsmann. ESPN says he will make his debut during its two-hour World Cup preview show Wednesday. Donovan will work out of the company's Los Angeles studios, with a particular focus on his former team. He will provide analysis before and after the Americans' group-stage matches and during halftime. Donovan will also appear on shows such as "SportsCenter." Donovan played in the last three World Cups, scoring a U.S.-record five goals.
