Landon Donovan Scores As Los Angeles Galaxy Win 2011 MLS Cup

The L.A. Galaxy have captured the 2011 MLS Cup, defeating the Houston Dynamo 1-0.

Landon Donovan scored the lone goal in the win. It was started by a header from England's David Beckham and a pass from Ireland's Robbie Keane. The trio has been considered the best in the MLS, and it made a strong argument when it combined for that deciding goal.

Donovan's goal came in the 72nd minute. Houston Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall got a piece of it, but he then watched as the ball slowly rolled in by the right post.

The goal was Donovan's 20th postseason goal — an MLS record– and it secured him the Cup MVP Award. The victory gives Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena his third Cup win of his career.
