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.
