Altadore out, Donovan in
Altidore has nine goals in 10 games this season for AZ Alkmaar in the Netherlands and is tied for the Dutch league lead with eight goals, but had little impact during two qualifiers against Jamaica last month.
Coach Jurgen Klinsmann says he told Atladore he wasn't pleased with his performance over about the last 14 months.
Earlier, Klinsmann was critical of Altidore in an espn.com interview that ran Sept. 28. Altidore, according to multiple reports, responded with a tweet, which since has been removed: "Love when people try to blame others for their own short comings and incompetence."
