United States men's national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has called 25 players into camp to prepare for matches on September 7th and September 11th, and Landon Donovan isn't one of them. The LA Galaxy forward has been day to day since the US friendly with Mexico.

The US will take on the Reggae Boyz on September 7th in Kingston, Jamaica. The World Cup Qualifier road matches are now being broadcast on beIN Sport, so those who have bit the bullet and opted in for advance packages will be able to see it. It will also be more readily available at your local sports bar.

Four days later the US will host Jamaica in Columbus, Ohio. MLS will take this international break weekend off, as will the other leagues around the world, which will give the Galaxy some extended time off before their next run of MLS and CCL matches. Tuesday's match in Columbus will be broadcast on ESPN2 and Univision.

Donovan will not report to Miami with his usual teammates, which includes recent Tottenham acquisition Clint Dempsey. Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City), Brek Shea (FC Dallas), Kyle Beckerman, Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake), and Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire) make up the MLS contingent.
