    Should Landon Donovan have been included on the U.S. World Cup Team?

    Many in the sports world were stunned when they heard that Donovan was left off the team. I was not. He's 32 and slowing down. Granted, his replacement lack a lot of game experience, but they have to start somewhere.  Donovan was great but 32 in international football is old.

    USA has no chance of getting out of their group either way so they might as well give the experience to younger players rather than letting Donovan on the team to eat up valuable minutes.  Klinsmen may have had other reasoning but the US needs to build toward the future and forget about 2014

      Exactly.  Think long term. That's how Klinsmen operates.  Anyone who follows the game should not be shocked.
