Donovan surprisingly left off U.S. World Cup squad

(Reuters) – Landon Donovan, the United States’ all-time top scorer, has been surprisingly left out of their 23-man squad for next month’s World Cup, U.S. Soccer said yesterday.

Donovan was part of the provisional 30-man squad, which has gathered at a pre-tournament camp in Palo Alto, California, but did not make the final cut selected by coach Juergen Klinsmann ahead of the June 12-July 13 tournament in Brazil.

The 32-year-old forward has played for the United States in the past three World Cups and was long considered the face of American soccer.
