The LAGalaxyInsider brings us two pieces of news from this morning's practice, both regarding who is and isn't there. In who's there news, Robbie Keane practiced with the LA Galaxy today. In who isn't there news, Christian Wilhelmsson missed practice to procure his P1 visa.

Robbie Keane never planned to participate in Ireland's friendly against Omar at Craven Cottage, but his exact return date wasn't known. Keane will get in a full week of practice with the Galaxy ahead of Friday's match against the Colorado Rapids.

MLS being one of the five sports leagues in America considered to have international recognition, all Wilhelmsson has to do is prove he has a contract with the Galaxy and the visa shall be granted. He could make an appearance as early as Friday; considering he was recently in camp with Sweden, expect him to be in the 18.

Finally, Landon Donovan said after yesterday's reserve match that he planned to take it easy today as he continues his recovery. He also said he should be good to go for Friday.
