On Thursday U.S. soccer legend Landon Donovan called time on his glittering career.

Donovan, 32, announced he will retire at the end of the 2014 Major League Soccer season. The LA Galaxy forward is the all-time leading scorer in MLS and for the U.S. national team.

For over 14 years he’s been the face of soccer, but now he’s hanging up his boots.

In the latest edition of PST Extra myself and Jenna Corrado break down Donovan’s decision, talk about his legacy for soccer in the U.S. and decipher if his exclusion from the USA’s World Cup squad this summer was pivotal.
