You have to feel for Landon Donovan.
The 32-year-old will surely not play in the World Cup again having been left out of Jurgen Klinsmann’s 23-man World Cup squad.
It was a huge call from Klinsmann and will likely be dissected aplenty in the coming weeks, especially if Team America struggle in an almost impossible group.
Group G features Germany, Portugal, USA and Ghana so Donovan’s experience and pace would surely have come in useful, even off the bench.
Before LA Galaxy training on Saturday, Landon Donovan gave his thoughts on the World Cup snub.
Donovan said: “I absolutely deserved to be going to Brazil” and comes across as hugely disappointed.
