Ahead of his final cap with the United States Men's National Team on Friday night, Landon Donovan sat down with Sports Illustrated's Grant Wahl for a "rapid-fire" interview spanning his legendary career. When asked "Who’s the best teammate you’ve ever had?" Donovan cites Crew and USMNT legend Frankie Hejduk among his favorite teammates.

We agree, LD. Well said.

Steve Clark made his second penalty kick save of the season with the stop of Marco Di Vaio of Montreal last weekend to preserve the shutout, his eighth of the season. The save led the Crew to a 2-0 victory. Clark has allowed just one goal in the club’s last five home contests, back in the 49th minute of the August 16 match against the LA Galaxy, or 410 minutes of Crew Stadium action ago.

On July 19, the Crew was victorious against the Montreal Impact before heading to New England on July 26 where the club secured a 2-1 win. Since that July 19 tilt, in the last 11 contests, the Crew is 7-2-2 and the club is unbeaten (3-0-1) since the beginning of September.

Ethan Finlay recorded his fourth game-winning goal of the year last weekend with his second-minute blast that helped the Crew to a 2-0 victory. Finlay is one of six players in MLS this year under the age of 25 to record at least four game-winning tallies in regular-season action. That list includes Chivas USA’s Erick “Cubo” Torres (4), Real Salt Lake’s Joao Plata (4), Houston’s Will Bruin (5), LA’s Gyasi Zardes (6) and Sporting KC’s Dom Dwyer (6).
