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.
