Landon Donovan putting his record pursuit out of mind ahead of Rapids match

By Adam Serrano

CARSON, Calif. – If Landon Donovan is going to take hold of the MLS all-time regular season goal scoring record before the World Cup, he’ll have to do it fast.

With the 30-man U.S. preliminary squad for the World Cup congregating in Stanford, Calif., on May 14, Donovan has just two league matches left with the Galaxy, starting with Saturday’s match against the Colorado Rapids on Saturday.

Although plenty of focus has been placed on Donovan’s pursuit of the league’s all-time regular season goal record, the Galaxy forward is putting little emphasis on the record.  

“It’s been quite a while now that we’ve been talking about the goal,” said Donovan. “I want to keep playing well and have the team continue to play well. Eventually the goal will come, but right now the focus is on as a team.”

Will Donovan get the 135th goal on Saturday?
