Landon Donovan Has Sunglasses Snatched By Referee During Gold Cup Match Against El Salvador (VIDEO)

Apparently "Finders, Keepers" isn't a philosophy that's enforced on the soccer pitch.

Shortly after recording his third assist of the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team's blowout win over El Salvador in the Gold Cup on Sunday, Landon Donovan playfully put on a pair of sunglasses that were thrown from the stands as he prepared to take a corner kick.

But the referee quickly grabbed them off his face.

"I'm just having a lot of fun," he told USA Today after the match. "I'm enjoying myself."

Donovan finished the game with three assists and a goal as the United States trampled El Salvador 5-1. The squad advanced to the Gold Cup semifinals.
