America's all-time leading goal-scorer has been left off the men's national soccer team that heads to Brazil in June. The news was first reported by ESPN's Taylor Twellman on Twitter.

Landon Donovan, who has been to three World Cups and has five World Cup goals to his name, is not on the 23-man roster that was announced Thursday evening. The 32-year-old had taken a leave from the team last year and will not be with the squad that competes in Group G with GhanaPortugal and Germany. 

In his initial roster breakdown, SI.com's Avi Creditor notes that Klinsmann largely opted for youth over experience on the roster.
