Donovan served as an analyst for Fox Sports 1's UEFA Champions League coverage a year ago and during the broadcast, he provided a hilarious impression of english accent of German-born U.S. National Team midfielder Jermaine Jones.

CARSON, Calif. – Landon Donovan will most likely not be at the 2014 FIFA World Cup with the U.S. National Team, but he may have some role to play in the way that Americans watch the World Cup.

A week ago, Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch recently wrote that Donovan could be an option for ESPN or Fox as they look to fill out their broadcasting rosters for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Donovan served as an analyst for Fox Sports 1’s UEFA Champions League coverage last November.

“There’s nothing coming of that yet. I’m listening, but we’ll see what happens. My focus is here [with the Galaxy] now,” said Donovan of the report. “There are a lot of obstacles, but in a perfect world, I could do something. If not, my first priority is here.”

The Galaxy will be off on a two-week MLS regular season break for the World Cup after their match against Chvias USA on Sunday, but the break will be short lived as they could potentially have two U.S. Open Cup games in late-June.

Landon Donovan addressed the 2014 FIFA World Cup, his snub from the U.S. National Team and his viewing plans for the tournament in an interview with the Dan Patrick Show on Friday. 

In a brief interview with Patrick, Donovan says that he's gotten over not being named to the USMNT's 23-man squad for Brazil, he's ready if called upon for the 2014 FIFA World Cup if there was an injury. However if he does not go,  he's still deciding where to watch the games if he's in Southern California. 

"Part of me wants to sit on my couch and just sit there and let the emotions go one way or the other so I'm not around anyone," Donovan said to Patrick. "Part of me wants to go sit at a bar and have a few beers and watch with local soccer fans and experience it all that way. So I don't know, it'll probably be a game-time decision."

Maybe you'll see Donovan at the LA Galaxy's Watch Parties?

In the brief video, Donovan answers a number of questions from his favorite goal (2010 vs. Algeria), his favorite Superhero (Captain America) and a host of other questions. The video is in Spanish, but you should have no trouble understanding when Donovan confesses his love for the R&B group Boyz II Men.
