Landon Donovan plays a trick on a linesman and talks about his U.S. success

By Adam Serrano

Landon Donovan had a pretty great day on Sunday, that's no doubt.

After all, he scored one goal and tallied three assists en route to a 5-1 U.S. victory over El Salvador in the quarterfinals of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup. However, a day later, it wasn't his goals or assists that drew the headlines, but a fun moment that Donovan had with second linesman Ricardo Louisville in the closing minutes of the match. Donovan found a pair of sunglasses and before handing them over to the linesman, chose to put them on. 

A great photo of Donovan's fun little poke at the linesman can be found below as well as a video of Donovan talking about his performance against El Salvador.
