Landon Donovan says he will make his final appearance for the U.S. national team Oct. 10 in a friendly against Ecuador.

Donovan announced the plan Tuesday.

Donovan is the top scorer in U.S. history with 57 goals and 58 assists in 156 appearances, but he wasn’t chosen for his fourth World Cup roster earlier this summer by coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

Earlier this month, the 32-year-old Donovan announced he will retire from the LA Galaxy after the season. The five-time MLS champion is the North American league’s career goals leader.

The U.S. team will face Ecuador at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut.

Klinsmann expressed excitement about Donovan’s final appearance in a post on his Twitter account.
