Landon Donovan scored the winning goal in a seven-goal thriller, as LA Galaxy overcame the Colorado Rapids 4-3 in the MLS.

Donovan, making a pass in his own half, can then be seen making a stunning run to find position and space before he is played in again to score in style. 

You can see him at the start of the clip right at the bottom of the screen.

We've pulled the clip a little further back than the official MLS video to show the entirety of Donovan's movement. You can watch the YouTube video here:
