Landon Donovan's possible home finale with Everton may have only been a 20-minute cameo, but it was a productive outing that saw Donovan notch an assist and score a goal in a 5-1 victory over Hull City.

With Everton leading 3-1, Donovan came off the bench and joined in on the fun almost immediately. Donovan nearly setup a goal moments after stepping onto the pitch, but Ayegbeni Yakubu blasted a shot in front of goal into the bleachers. That missed opportunity was forgotten when Donovan got on the end of a low cross and scored his second goal of the Premier League season by one-timing a driven shot into the side netting. Donovan then helped cap the scoring when he assisted on Jack Rodwell's goal.

Donovan wasn't the only American Abroad to find the back of the net this weekend. Carlos Bocanegra scored the winner in Stade Rennes' 1-0 victory over AS Monaco, and Herculez Gomez extended his scoring streak to four games when he net Puebla's lone goal in a 4-1 loss to Pumas UNAM.
