Landon Donovan on Letterman
Letterman congratulated Donovan on his and the team’s World Cup performance and for "bringing the country together." Saturday's match between the U.S. and Ghana was the most-watched soccer game in U.S. history, registering 19.4 million viewers on ABC and Univision combined.
"I thought we did a great job," Donovan told Letterman. "I think this time was a little more special 'cause I think we really felt the love back home and that made it really, really special for us."
