Washington, July 25 (IANS): Veteran striker Landon Donovan scored twice and set up a goal to help the US beat Honduras 3-1 at the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinal.

Donovan set up teammate Eddie Johnson with a brilliant pass, and the attacker powered a shot in the 11th minute to take a 1-0 lead Wednesday, reports Xinhua.

Donovan scored his first goal in the 27th minute, extending the lead to 2-0. Honduras saw some hope when Nery Medina pulled one back in 52nd minute, but Donovan’s third a minute later quashed any doubts of a US win.

Donovan has scored five goals and seven assists in the tournament.

“It’s the most relaxed I’ve felt,” Donovan said.
