In light of Landon Donovan tying MLS' all-time goals record this past weekend, we're asking which player you think is better. Do you pick Landon Donovan or former New England Revolution forward Taylor Twellman?
Donovan has played in three World Cups, won five MLS Cup titles, is a six-time best XI winner in MLS and has been the league MVP once. He has had stints abroad with Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich, and Everton. He has scored 134 MLS goals and 57 for the national team.
Twellman has played in four MLS Cup finals. He is a two-time best XI winner and has been league MVP once. In 2005, he led the league in scoring. Though he had one stint abroad with 1860 Munich, his stardom arrived when he landed with the Revolution in 2002. Though he only scored six goals for the national team, many believe that he could have and should have been part of US' 2006 World Cup team. Twellman retired in 2010 due to head and neck injuries, but did so after scoring 101 MLS goals.

Google Translate is not perfect -- we're aware of that -- but it is quite good at getting the main points of the story across. We've successfully used it on The Big Picture, Boston.com's extremely popular world photography site. I'd be eager to hear your feedback on its use in Corner Kicks, in whatever language.
