Landon Donovan Funny News Interview. Don't ask dumb Questions!

Familiarity could be a factor in USA star Landon Donovan encouraging national team coach Bob Bradley to consider Edson Buddle and Herculez Gomez, for World Cup roster selection. 

Gomez, who has had an excellent run of form for Puebla in Mexico, was a teammate of Donovan's at the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2005. The two strikers combined to score the most goals on the squad, helping the team win the famed double trophies of MLS Cup and the US Open Cup. 

Buddle is Donovan's teammate on the Galaxy at present, and has scored all five of the team's goals in three games this season. 

"Most people see the goal-scoring, which obviously as a forward is important," Donovan told the Associated Pressin a recent interview. "But for me, equally if not more importantly are the little things he's doing to help our team win."

Donovan also seemed to be impressed by the scoring streak of Gomez, and advocated for the deadly striker to get a change. 

"Taking a look at, absolutely," Donovan said. "Why wouldn't you? At this point, you would have to think everything is an option."

Though it is quite late in the World Cup schedule for coaches to consider players with little national team experience, the current rash of injuries for the Americans at the striker position could see either Buddle or Gomez get a shot.
