The LA Galaxy list of available players continues to have a revolving door policy as today it was announced that Robbie Keane will miss the Chivas USA match to join Ireland for two international friendlies and that Todd Dunivant had a surgical procedure to repair an ab tear and will be out until at least mid-July.

The Galaxy were able to keep Keane through a summer friendly against Turkey, a big help in getting through last week's double match schedule. He'll be able to stay through the road trip to Chicago, despite Ireland taking place in a friendly against Italy in two days. The two remaining Irish friendlies take place in the United States, as part of the Road to Brazil warm up series.

The other bit of news to break today is the updated status of Todd Dunivant, who underwent surgery to replace an abdominal tear and will be out until "probably late-July". The Galaxy have settled into DeLaGarza and Gargan at the fullback positions out of necessity, but certainly not having Dunivant for the first half of the season was not in Bruce Arena's plans when he extended the veteran's contract.
