||MLS Cup Final: New England Revolution at Los Angeles Galaxy

Individually, Donovan has racked up an ample amount of accolades throughout his professional career. During the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Donovan joined the prestigious “50-50 Club” after achieving at least 50 goals and 50 assists – becoming the first U.S. player to accomplish the milestone. Back in October, US Soccer took a look at the numerical breakdown of some of Donovan’s achievements, which among the many, includes 12 World Cup appearances, while domestically, a win in Sunday’s match would help him set yet another record by becoming the first player to secure six MLS Cup titles.
In addition to putting the finishing touches on Donovan’s legacy, the decisive match also will be historic for either Los Angeles or New England. For the Galaxy, a win would give the club five titles overall, making it the first team in MLS history to reach the milestone. Meanwhile, should the Revolution prevail, it would be the very first for the club which has finished runner-up in all four of its previous MLS Cup appearances.
