STANFORD, Calif. — American career scoring leader Landon Donovan is among seven players cut as the U.S. announced its 23-man World Cup roster.
Jurgen Klinsmann named his 23-player roster Thursday, with Real Salt Lake midfielder Kyle Beckerman and goalkeeper Nick Rimando to the team.
Also named to the final roster: Jozy Altidore, Clint Dempsey, Aron Johannsson Chris Wondolowski; Alejandro Bedoya, Michael Bradley, Brad Davis, Mix Diskerud, Jermaine Jones, Graham Zusi, Julian Green; Tim Howard, Brad Guzan and Nick Rimando are the goalkeepers. DaMarcus Beasley, Matt Besler, John Brooks, Geoff Cameron, Timmy Chandler, Omar Gonzalez, Fabian Johnson and DeAndre Yedlin.
The 32-year-old Donovan, bidding to make his fourth World Cup, was bypassed Thursday by Klinsmann in favor of Aron Johannsson and Chris Wondolowski, who joined Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey as the forwards.
Also cut were defenders Brad Evans, Clarence Goodson and Michael Parkhurst; midfielders Joe Corona and Maurice Edu; and forward Terrence Boyd.
