Jurgen Klinsmann has left Landon Donovan out of his USA squad for Januaryâ€™s camp.
The LA Galaxy star is arguably his countryâ€™s best player but will not be involved with the team in the first camp of 2013 with Klinsmann explaining the reasons why.
"Landon has not been invited because obviously heâ€™s taking his break," Klinsmann told Fox Soccer's Goals on Sunday. "Heâ€™s thinking about his future.
"Heâ€™s not at a point yet where he knows what he wants to do. Itâ€™s a simple as that. Thatâ€™s why we didn't invite Landon. Weâ€™re as curious as everyone else as to what his decision will be at a future time. But right now heâ€™s not part of our camp."
