Whoops! Samsung Arabia Wishes Landon Donovan Good Luck in Today’s Game

MANAUS, Brazil (AP) — Landon Donovan is still the biggest name in American soccer. He’s just not playing for the U.S. at the World Cup.

So an unfortunate tweet from Samsung Mobile Arabia went viral for all the wrong reasons Sunday when the company posted: “Best of luck to Landon Donovan & the USA team.”

The 32-year-old Donovan, the American career leader in goals and assists, was cut from the squad last month. He was part of a Samsung ad campaign that included the likes of Argentina star Lionel Messi and England’s Wayne Rooney.

The account also tweeted well-wishes to another endorser Sunday: “Cristiano Ronaldo is all set for today’s match. We wish Portugal team all the very best.” At least Ronaldo is indeed on Portugal’s squad for the game against the United States.
