Landon Donovan will not be participating in the MLS All-Star Game. The LA Galaxy captain will not participate in Wednesday's match against Manchester United due to a calf injury, the club announced on Sunday.

Donovan missed the club's penalty kick defeat to Manchester City on Sunday. The teams tied, 1-1, leading to a 7-6 penalty kick shootout loss for the Galaxy.

Donovan had been voted to the first XI for the match against United and is currently tied for second in MLS in goals scored with nine.

MLS announced late Sunday that Donovan would not be replaced on the roster and the MLS All-Star Team will remain with 22 players to take on Manchester United.

How do you feel now that Donovan will be missing the All Star Game? Does this hurt the event now the league's biggest star will not be playing?
