LA Galaxy superstar Landon Donovan says he will be fine to take his place for the USA in their CONCACAF Gold Cup opener.

The 29-year old attacking midfielder was forced to the sidelines for Saturday's friendly loss to Spain because of an undisclosed illness but he insists that he will up for tomorrow's meeting with Canada.

"I'm feeling better," Donovan said. "I haven't properly trained in a few days, so today was a little more difficult than a normal training session.

"I was breathing pretty hard, but I feel good, and I would expect I'll be fine by Tuesday."
