NEW YORK — Jozy Altidore was dropped Monday from the U.S. roster for critical World Cup qualifiers and Landon Donovan was among the 24 players picked despite injuring his left knee last weekend.


Altidore has nine goals in 10 games this season for AZ Alkmaar in the Netherlands but had little impact during two qualifiers last month.


U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was critical in an espn.com interview published Sept. 28, saying, "I think Jozy can do a lot better, and he knows that."


Altidore, according to multiple reports, responded with a tweet, which since has been removed, saying: "Love when people try to blame others for their own shortcomings and incompetence."


Klinsmann also bypassed Rapid Vienna's Terrence Boyd, who has seven goals for his club this season, and San Jose's Chris Wondolowski, who leads Major League Soccer with 25 goals.
