Landon Donovan is handling being left off Team USA's 2014 FIFA World Cup roster like a pro.

The United States will open their tournament against Ghana on Monday, but they will be without a familiar face. For the first time since 1998, Donovan will not be suiting up for the squad in the World Cup.

Donovan has handled being left off the squad last month as well as anybody could handle a major disappointment. In the latest EA Sports ad, he was able to poke fun at the exclusion.
