Real Salt Lake won't have a presence on the U.S. Men's National Team in Wednesday's World Cup Qualifier at Honduras. RSL midfielder Kyle Beckerman captained the U.S. side in its recent friendly with Canada, and defender Tony Beltran got the start for his first national cap. But both were left off the 24-man roster coach Jurgen Klinsmann unveiled Monday.
Defenders Omar Gonzalez, Matt Besler and Brad Evans were among seven players selected from Major League Soccer who appeared in last week's 0-0 exhibition draw against Canada.
Klinsmann did not consider Landon Donovan, who said after last year's MLS Cup final that he was uncertain he wanted to keep playing. Los Angeles Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said last month he expects Donovan to play at some point this year.
