It's the return of the fabled UF Market Place for a special Confederations Cup edition. Feel the excitement!!!
Tomorrow the US takes on world number one, Spain, in one semifinal on the strength of 4 rabbits feet, 3 scarabs, 2 lady bugs and 1 big fat leprechaun in a pot of gold. In other words, the US is incredibly lucky to have advanced beyond the group stages. It has been a team effort in both winning and losing, as always, but the performance of Landon Donovan has been notable for his consistent effort and workrate in the face of the inconsistency of rest of his teammates.
He has, quite simply, outshone the rest of his team.
UF is divided about whether this performance of Donovan has been a good performance or just an average performance amidst a number of below-average performances.
So, has Donovan's performance increased the likelihood of Donovan's desired transfer to Europe, or will he continue to be a big fish in a little pond?
