Injured Donovan drops out of All-Star Game

Landon Donovan missed the Los Angeles Galaxy's friendly Sunday afternoon against Manchester City with a strained right calf. Turns out it'll keep him out of Major League Soccer's All-Star Game, too.

The Galaxy captain withdrew from Wednesday's midsummer classic after the Man City game because of injury, a lingering ailment that was bothering him a little more than usual this week.

New York Red Bulls coach Hans Backe, who will guide the MLS All-Stars against Manchester United in the game in Harrison, N.J., likely will decide by Monday who will replace Donovan on the 22-man game roster.
