Chris Wondolowski of the San Jose Earthquakes was named a member of the United States' men's soccer team for the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Landon Donovan did not make the cut.


Chris Wondolowski is in while Landon Donovan is out of Team USA for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

U.S. Men's National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann drew up the 23-player roster, per USSoccer.com:  

"U.S. Men's Men's National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has named the USA's 23-player roster for the 2014 FIFA World Cup this summer in Brazil. The roster will be officially submitted to FIFA on June 2. 

"Klinsmann will be available at a press conference tomorrow on the campus of Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. Details on location and time will be provided shortly. 

"'It's an excitng moment when you have narrowed the roster down as a coaching staff, and these 23 players that you've chosen can focus now purely on Brazil,' Klinsmann said. 

"'We can go into more specific things about technical approaches, and about the opponents. For the players, it's very important to know that they are now part of it and they can relax and know they are on the list going to Brazil and taking it from there. After almost 10 days of work right now, we thought the point has come to make the decision.'" 

However, one player conspicuously missing from the roster is Landon Donovan, according to TeamUSA.org's Chris McDougall. 

"Four U.S. Olympic soccer players were named to the 23-man U.S. roster for this summer's FIFA World Cup in Brazil. 

"Landon Donovan wasn't one of them. 

"Donovan, a 2000 U.S. Olympian and the United States' all-time leading scorer, was a surprise omission when U.S. Soccer unexpectedly announced the final roster on Thursday night. 

"Of the players who will be going to Brazil, goalie Brad Guzan, midfielder Michael Bradley and forward Jozy Altidore represented Team USA in Beijing in 2008 while goalie Tim Howard was a member of the 2000 Olympic squad. 

"The U.S. men did not qualify for the 2004 or 2012 Olympic soccer tournaments.  

"In Donovan's absence, defender DeMarcus Beasley is the only U.S. player going to his fourth World Cup in 2014. Howard and forward Clint Dempsey were named to their third World Cup rosters. Altidore, Bradley and Guzan return from the 2010 U.S. World Cup team. 

"Thirty players had been called into the U.S. camp in Palo Alto, which began May 14. Forward Terrance Boyd, midfielders Joe Corona and Maurice Edu, and defenders Brad Evans, Clarence Goodson and Michael Parkhurst joined Donovan in the final round of cuts. 

"Edu and Parkhurst are both 2008 Olympians. The greatest omission, however, has gone to Donovan's omission. 

"With 57 goals, Donovan is the United States' all-time leading scorer. His 156 games rank second all-time, while his 12 World Cup games and five World Cup goals are also U.S. records. 

"However, the Los Angeles Galaxy star took a controversial sabbatical from the sport last season and has struggled to regain his standing with the national team.

"Although Donovan, 32, had since rejoined the national team and the Galaxy, a lingering knee injury and questions about his commitment and fitness persisted throughout the training camp. 

"Ultimately Kinsmann decided to go with a younger, less-experienced team by including players such as 18-year-old midfielder Julian Green and 20-year-old defender DeAndre Yedlin."

On the other hand, San Jose Earthquakes striker Chris "Wondo" Wondolowski will play in his first FIFA World Cup, per the team's official website

"San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski will represent the United States at the 2014 FIFA World Cup after making the Americans' final 23-man roster announced by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Thursday.

"Wondolowski, 31, has nine goals in 19 caps with the U.S. He has nine goals in his last 10 games dating back to his final national team tally against Guatemala on July 6, 2013.

"Wondo has been in fine form this year, scoring both of the Americans' goals in a 2-0 win against South Korea at the StubHub Center on Feb. 1 and the second in a 2-2 draw against Mexico at University of Phoenix Stadium on April 2. 

"He has the highest goals-per-game average since the beginning of 2013 at 0.81. Last summer, Wondolowski took home a share of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup Golden Boot after tying USA teamate Landon Donovan and Panama's Gabriel Torres with five goals during the month-long tournament. 

"Over the last four years, Wondolowski has been the most prolific American goal scorer with 84 goals in his last 150 games. He led the league in goals in 2010, 2011 and 2012 and was named Volkswagen MLS Most Valuable Player in 2012 after tying the MLS record for goals in a single season with 27.

 

"The United States was drawn into Group G along with Germany, Portugal and Ghana. They'll open with Ghana on Monday, June 16 in Natal followed by Portugal on Sunday, June 22 in Manaus and Germany on Thursday, June 26 in Recife."
