STANFORD, Calif. (AP/KMOX) — It’s a dream come true for a professional soccer player who grew up in the St. Louis area, attending Chaminade High & St. Louis University.

United States coach Jurgen Klinsmann named 32-year-old midfielder Brad Davis of the MLS Houston Dynamo squad to the 2014 FIFA World Cup team for the Americans.

A big name that did not make the team is American career scoring leader Landon Donovan.

Donovan was among seven players cut as the U.S. announced its 23-man World Cup roster.  The 32-year-old attacker was bidding to make his fourth World Cup team.
