Landon Donovan may have been left out of Jurgen Klinsmann's World Cup squad, but he still had time to score against Manuel Neuer this summer.

The LA Galaxy man represented the MLS All-Stars in a showpiece friendly against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night in Portland, Oregon, and his 70th-minute strike, muscled in against his former club, handed the All-Stars a 2-1 win.

Plenty of credit should go to the cross from Diego Valeri, which was pinpoint.

After the match, Bayern Munich head man Pep Guardiola refused to shake hands with Portland Timbers and MLS All-Stars head coach Caleb Porter for what Guardiola believed was overly physical play in the midfield.
