Landon Donovan was called up to the U.S. national team Thursday for the first time since last August, joining 22 other players named to the roster for next month's Gold Cup. Donovan, U.S. soccer's all-time leader in goals and assists, last played for Coach Juergen Klinsmann in a friendly in Mexico City 10 months ago.

BALTIMORE - After Juergen Klinsmann took over as coach of the U.S. national soccer team nearly two years ago, the positive results were not immediate. As recently as late May, when the Americans lost a friendly to Belgium, there were questions about whether the former German star and coach was a good fit. Although the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup is clearly not the World Cup in terms of competition or worldwide significance, Klinsmann's imprint is becoming apparent as the U.S. continues to blow out its mostly overwhelmed opponents.

And U.S. Coach Juergen Klinsmann said he was looking forward to seeing the Galaxy standout in action. "Landon coming back into our group is exciting," he said. "He has a wonderful opportunity now to prove where he's at now after his break. We're just curious to see how he picks up the rhythm, how he picks up the speed and tempo.

SAN DIEGO -- Landon Donovan has taken great pains to keep the focus of his national team comeback in the present. Next summer's World Cup, he has continued to insist, will take care of itself. "I'm going to enjoy today and worry about tomorrow later," he said. But it looks like the future won't wait. Because with a two-goal performance in the U.S. national team's 6-0 win over Guatemala on Friday, Donovan moved a big step closer toward securing a spot on the roster for Brazil 2014.

SEATTLEĀ  - Juergen Klinsmann went 23 months and 28 matches as coach of the U.S. national soccer team before starting the same lineup in consecutive games. The experiment didn't last long. Klinsmann, who lost midfielders Jermaine Jones and Graham Zusi in last week's win in Jamaica, will go back to the drawing board to find a starting 11 for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against unbeaten Panama at CenturyLink Field (TV: Unimas, ESPN, 7 p.m.). Jones is out with a concussion, while Zusi is suspended a match after picking up two yellow cards.

TIJUANA -- When Bob Filner was sworn in as mayor of San Diego last month, he delivered part of his inauguration speech in Spanish. Apparently you don't become a 10-term congressman or mayor of the country's eighth-largest city without knowing your audience. And while some parts of the U.S.-Mexico border have more cultural tension - such as Arizona - residents living on both sides of the San Diego-Tijuana boundary tend to see the area as one region rather than two countries. It's a region that now has a championship soccer team in the Xoloitzcuintles of Tijuana, which won the Mexican first division title the day before Filner took office.

TIJUANA - The question bores Joe Corona. Yet it's always the first one people ask. Is he Mexican or American? "I always say 'both.' Because I have both cultures," says Corona, who was born in Los Angeles but raised in San Diego and Tijuana by a Mexican father and Salvadoran mother. "I know it's a little weird but I feel part of [me] is Mexican because of my family, because I was raised in Tijuana. And American because I was raised here, went to school here. " So while others may see the hyphen in "Mexican-American" as a barrier separating the two countries, Corona sees it as a bridge linking them together.

Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez and Club Tijuana midfielder Joe Corona were among 23 players called up to the U.S. national soccer team Monday ahead of crucial World Cup qualifiers with Costa Rica on Friday in Denver and March 26 against Mexico in Mexico City. One game into the final round of qualifying for Brazil 2014, the U.S. is the only country in its six-team regional pool without a point. The U.S. team has been hit hard by injuries that have left eight regulars, including keeper and captain Tim Howard, unavailable.
