LA Galaxy forward Landon Donovan is upset about being dropped from the World Cup squad by United States Head Coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

After a training session at the LA Galaxy, Donovan addressed the media about his disappointment stating, "I think if I'm being judged based solely on what happened in camp, then I absolutely deserved to be going to Brazil."

"I think I was one of the better players in camp. If I had gone in and didn't think I deserved it then I can live with that, but that is not the case here.

"Based on my performances leading up to camp, based on my preparation for the camp, based on my fitness, based on my workload, based on the way I trained and played in camp, I not only thought I was a part of the 23, I thought I was in contention to be starting."
