“It’s part of life,” says Landon Donovan, when asked whether he’s come to terms with not being part of the USMNT squad that will travel to Brazil for the World Cup.
Donovan is not bitter but rather bittersweet when talking to Dan Patrick about missing the World Cup. He says that he looks forward to supporting the U.S., having not been able to be just a fan for the past twelve years.
