Despite being eliminated in the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals, the Galaxy at least knows Landon Donovan, the team's all-time scoring leader, is back to playing a complete game.
For the first time since he reported late to the Galaxy after a self-imposed hiatus for mental and physical exhaustion, Donovan played a full 90 minutes in the Galaxy's 1-0 loss to the Monterrey Rayados on Wednesday night in Mexico.
Monterrey won the two-leg CONCACAF tournament with a 3-1 aggregate score. Monterrey won the first game, 2-1, last week at Home Depot Center.
Donovan, 31, had played about 30 minutes in each of his first two games back with the Galaxy before going the distance Wednesday night against Monterrey.
