Claudio Reyna and Landon Donovan are among 33 finalists for the Mastercard All-Star Team chosen by FIFA’s Technical Committee. The finalists will be announced Monday, and the team will be revealed on Friday.

Reyna, a veteran central midfielder, missed the 1994 World Cup with a torn right hamstring. He played in the tournament four years ago, but was ineffective after hurting his back when kneed by a German player in the first round.

But this year, even though he didn’t score, Reyna was masterly in creating opportunities and shutting down the opposition.

Donovan, at 20 the youngest player to score in the tournament, had two goals — one against Poland and one vs. Mexico. A versatile midfielder who also plays forward, his cross led to an own goal against Portugal, as well.

Imo Sanneh and Friedel and possibly O'Brien were more useful than Reyna in the WC.

Donovan was one of the best break-out players though:)
