BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, November 7, 2011
US Soccer announced on Monday night that forward/midfielder Landon Donovan has withdrawn from the US national team roster for the upcoming friendlies against France and Slovenia.

US Soccer also added that no replacement for Donovan was going to be added to the roster at this time.

Donovan has missed the three previous US games against Ecuador, Honduras, and Belgium. His last international appearance was against Costa Rica in California back in September.

Donovan is missing the upcoming friendlies to focus on the MLS Cup. After winning the Supporters Shield for the best regular season, the Galaxy qualified for the MLS Cup final after a 3-0 win over Real Salt Late on Sunday.
