That's what I was thinking. Even as an optimist, 7s and 8s just seem to be overstating his impact on the match. When he got the ball, yes, he did well, but he was't getting the ball as much as some others. Perhaps this is just a shock moment for everyone in England who, up to this point, refused to believe how good Donovan (as well as other Americans) really is. If you expect him to put on the same miserable performance he made as a young inexperienced player in the Champions League, then of course you're going to think he really lit it up yesterday.
