Donovan, U.S. go for eight straight

For the first time in his MLS career, Landon Donovan is not an All-Star, snapping a string of 12 consecutive appearances. Still, although the 31-year-old's elite status might be in question, he remains relevant on the U.S. scene, as he and the Americans face Costa Rica on Tuesday night (8 ET) in the final game of Group C play at the CONCACAF Gold Cup. At stake: The U.S.'s record-tying seven-game win streak, as well as scoring spells for Donovan and breakout star Chris Wondolowski. Plus, these two nations will square off on Sept. 6 in World Cup qualifying ...
