Jurgen Klinsmann announced last night that LA Galaxy forward Landon Donovan has been replaced by Ingolstadt forward Edson Buddle on the USMNT roster for the upcoming friendlies.
Donovan, 29, recently picked up an injury on his right quadriceps that will also keep him out of this week's LA Galaxy game against the New York Red Bulls.
With the injury, it also signifies that Jurgen Klinsmann is yet to have the opportunity to play both Landon Donovan and Clint Dempsey together.
Edson Buddle will arrive in US national team camp after a strong performance for Ingolstadt over the weekend. In a game against Bochum, Buddle scored twice and picked up an assist in a 5-3 loss. Buddle currently has five goals in the 2.Bundesliga this season.
