Evertonian Roger Bennett revealed today that he will make a documentary about former Toffee Landon Donovan's final games with LA Galaxy of Major League Soccer. Bennett broke the news on his Twitter feed.

Donovan was loaned to Everton twice: in January of 2010, before the World Cup in South Africa, and again in January of 2012. The California native and United States Men's National Team star scored two goals in a Blues uniform. He announced his retirement in August.
Bennett, a Liverpool native and co-host of the wildly popular Men in Blazers podcast (and now television show), is no stranger to directing television or the USMNT. This summer, before the World Cup in Brazil, he directed the six-part "Inside: U.S. Soccer's March to Brazil" for ESPN. It appears from his tweet that he will be joining up with the same production company that made that series.
Donovan plays his final game and will captain his country this Friday in a friendly match against Ecuador. It is unknown when his last game with the Galaxy will be, as the MLS title is decided on a playoff format. The Galaxy have clinched a spot in the playoffs.
Rog is making a fly on the wall documentary about Landon Donovan's final days as a professional soccer player. End of shooting Day One. Rog is on the right. #StLandon
