SUNDERLAND striker Jozy Altidore has been confirmed in the United States squad for th World Cup in Brazil – but there was no place for former captain Landon Donovan.

Altidore has been preferred by boss Jurgen Klinsmann to the 32-year-old, the States’ all-time leading scorer with 57 goals, despite a poor season with Sunderland.

Donovan, capped 156 times, is on a standby list alongside the six other players cut from the initial 30-strong group.
