Top scorers left off US World Cup team

Three US-born players are leading leagues in scoring, but none will play for the national team in World Cup qualifiers against Antigua & Barbuda and Guatemala.

Coach Jurgen Klinsmann announced the squad Monday, leaving out Jozy Altidore (AZ Alkmaar), the Dutch Eredivisie’s No. 1 scorer, and Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes), who is challenging the MLS goal record. Aron Johannsson, a 21-year-old Mobile, Ala., native who tops Denmark’s Superliga scoring list, recently confirmed that he will play for Iceland.
