U.S. team drops Donovan, Jones from roster

Midfielders Landon Donovan and Jermaine Jones have been dropped from the U.S. roster for Tuesday’s final World Cup qualifier at Panama because of injuries, and goalkeeper Tim Howard and defender Matt Besler were allowed to return to their clubs. The U.S. clinched its seventh straight World Cup berth last month and beat Jamaica 2-0 Friday night to clinch first place in North and Central America and the Caribbean for the third straight cycle. Donovan has been bothered by the ankle he sprained in mid-September while playing for the Los Angeles Galaxy and Jones by the knee injury that has cost him playing time with Schalke. – AP
