The Galaxy’s Landon Donovan may have the ball in this picture of him in action against Birmingham City today, but he apparently did little of consequence with it in a 1-2 Everton loss. (AP photo).
The on-loan Galaxy star lasted 76 minutes before being subbed and I couldn’t find a match report that even mentioned his name.
It was Birmingham’s first win on Merseyside in more than 50 years.
Said LD on Facebook:
Tough night. My first FA Cup experience wasn’t the best but fortunately we play again on Wednesday. Need to forget about this and move forward to Sunderland. Thanks to all the Everton fans for all your support…you guys have been great to me. See you Wednesday night.
Everton play Sunderland at home Wednesday, BTW.
