In what must have been a difficult media session on Saturday, Landon Donovan addressed U.S. Soccer’s shock decision to leave him off the 23-man roster for this summer’s World Cup.

At the LA Galaxy’s training facility in Carson, Calif., the 157-time international talked about the disappointment of Thursday’s decision, the need to be supportive of the U.S. this summer, and his intent to move on after facing the story head-on today at StubHub Center.

Dnovan’s team is back in league action tomorrow, facing the visiting Philadelphia Union at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. According to the team, Donovan is expected to play – potentially scoring the goal that will leave the 32-year-old alone on top of Major League Soccer’s all-time goal scoring chart.
