usmnt striker landon donovan contracted h1n1 virus

August 14, 2009


USMNT striker Landon Donovan has contracted the H1N1 virus.

Donovan tells that he has been tested positive for the swine-flu virus in the States last week, prior to the World Cup qualifying match on Wednesday in Mexico where the pandemic began.

I felt something when I got into Miami on Sunday. just felt real bad and finally went to see the doctor. They took a swab from my nose and confirmed it, so that was that.

Of the upcoming MLS match this Saturday, Donovan said he might be able to play for his LA Galaxy club.

If I feel well there’s no reason why I can’t play, but we’ll just have to see how I feel. Judging by how I felt during other flus and colds, this doesn’t seem as bad, so maybe I got a mild strain of it.

    Here’s hoping he gets better. Stadium pissing aside, he is one exceptional player, and one of the few who makes MLS fun to catch once in a while.

    Poor Landycakes. But Thank God he picked this up BEFORE Mexico.
    We think some journo depictions of Mexico were bad before…….

    Micah still has his meds. He’ll share.
