DONOVAN, SHEA REMOVED FROM USMNT
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
JAMIE HILL - Tuesday, October 9, 2012
The USSF today announced that Landon Donovan and Brek Shea will not participate in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Antigua & Barbuda and Guatemala due to injury.

The federation stated in a press release that no immediate replacements will be added to the squad.

Donovan, who also missed the two qualifiers against Jamaica in September, is ruled out because of a knee injury incurred in the Galaxy's match over the weekend.

Shea has been suffering from an abdominal strain since late September.

The subtraction of the attacking duo leaves the US camp with 22 players remaining for the final two matches in the semifinal round of CONCACAF region World Cup qualifying.

If JK is smart he'll call up Boyd and Jozy or Gatt. If he doesnt call any replacements then he doesnt value his job...at least bradley called up or best players. If he has a problem with jozy then at least give boyd gatt or aron j. Jurgen is a good coach so lets hope his coaching abilities get us to the WC.

So LD and Brek are out and there is no replacement even though this happened well in advance of the qualifiers. It seems to me that this is just a slap in the face to those that were left off the roster particularly Jozy. Is there no set of circumstances that JK would call in Jozy? Seriously we are down 2 already and there is a chance that more could get hurt / suspended in the following practices / games. But hey it's not like the upcoming games are important or anything.
