U.S. national team and LA Galaxy star Landon Donovan went the full ninety minutes, tallied his first assist and drew a pivotal free kick which led to a goal in his debut for Bayern Munich, a 3-2 victory over Al Jazeera on Saturday.

The Los Angeles Galaxy player, currently on loan until March, found German international Bastian Schweinsteiger in the 31st minute with a simple yet effective pass. Schweinsteiger received Donovan's pass and took a touch on the ball before putting it over the goal-line.

In the second half, a foul on Donovan turned into a deadly free-kick situation that Daniel van Buyten buried into the back of the net.

What did you think of Donovan's performance? Proud that Donovan had a good showing? Think Klinsmann had him playing the correct role? Or should he try to fit Donovan elsewhere during these friendlies? Think he just might stick around Bayern Munich longer than just two months?
