Donovan, Rogers, Kljestan and Bornstein Named to U.S. Roster for Wednesday’s World Cup Qualifier Against Mexico

After picking up his first cap against Sweden at Home Depot Center last month, Rolling Hills Estates’ Robbie Rogers has retained his place in the U.S. squad for the game against Mexico in Columbus. (He has the fewest number of caps of any player on the squad).

Also on the 20-man roster announced today: the Galaxy’s Landon Donovan, a 72nd minute substitute today in Bayern Munich’s win over Borussia Dortmund, Chivas USA midfielder Sacha Kljestan and his club teammate Jonny Bornstein of Los Alamitos.

The complete squad.

The game is at 4 p.m. Wednesday on HD ESPN2.

    Was cool Rogers made his first in LA and now hopefully the 2nd at his MLS team’s home…

    I know it’s pretty much Beckham transfer talk atm, but do you have any news on the trialists or the behind doors game scheduled between the Saunders and the Galaxy?

    Nick replies: When I last checked in on the Galaxy and Chivas USA, (Thursday, I think it was) all trialists remained with both teams. None had been let go. The Sounders-Galaxy game is Monday, but this is probably a good time to observe that the blog will go on hiatus Monday through Friday. I will schedule some posts ahead of time, but there will be no news updates.
