(Newser) – Normally, the love lives of soccer players don't draw much attention (at least in the US), but things are different if A) your name is Landon Donovan; B) you score this goal in the World Cup; C) your estranged wife is beauty Bianca Kajlich of TV's Rules of Engagement; and D) the aforementioned goal might help you get back together with the aforementioned estranged wife.

“We spoke last night; it was nice," Donovan tells Yahoo Sports, adding, "We are not officially divorced." Did we mention he blew her an on-air kiss after scoring? “It would surprise no one if Landon and Bianca were back together very soon,” says a friend of Kajlich's. “The fact that Landon wanted to share his special moment with her is very significant.”
