New York, NY (Sports Network) - Los Angeles Galaxy forward Landon Donovan was
named to his 13th straight MLS All-Star team on Friday after commissioner Don
Garber selected Donovan to replace the injured Robbie Keane.
Donovan was initially left off the roster that will face Italian side AS Roma
on Wednesday in the 2013 MLS All-Star Game. However, Keane sustained a left
hip flexor strain in the Galaxy's match against the Portland Timbers on July
13 and will be unavailable for Wednesday's contest.
"Landon (Donovan) is a great addition to the MLS All-Star team. Obviously his
form is fantastic right now and his impact and representation of Major League
Soccer throughout his career is immeasurable," All-Star head coach Peter
Donovan has tallied three goals with six assists in 13 games for the Galaxy
this season after taking an extended offseason.
He will represent the United States in the Gold Cup final against Panama on
Sunday before joining up with the All-Star team in Kansas City.
