Landon Donovan will not make the trip to South Afica for Saturday’s friendly due to a calf strain picked up during a Galaxy friendly. Derby County manager Billy Davies refused to release Eddie Lewis for the match because he is hoping Lewis will be able to get the last place Rams to start winning some matches. Davies is allowing Benny Feilhaber to play and hopes he will be able to learn from the experiance.
What do the losses mean to the team? In my opinion not much. Lewis is agreat player who has done a lot for American soccer, but his absensce gives a younger player a chance to set up. Donovan not playing should guarentee Jozy Altidore a chance to play Saturday. Hopefully.
What are your thoughts?
