Landon Donovan has responded to criticism of his sabbatical with strong play for club and country.

Donovan: True. Look, my motivation comes from inside, and while I'm happy as a human being here in L.A., if I'd gone somewhere else in the coming months I still would have performed at that same level. But as far as the off-the-field stuff, it just makes life better, more enjoyable, easier, when I'm here near my family and I can do it in a place where I can call home.
