The former Everton loanee is one of seven players cut from the roster by national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who narrowed down his selection on Thursday.
"It's an exciting moment when you have narrowed the roster down as a coaching staff, and these 23 players that you've chosen can focus now purely on Brazil," said Klinsmann.
"We can go into more specific things about technical approaches, and about the opponents. For the players, it's very important to know that they are now part of it and they can relax and know they are on the list going to Brazil and taking it from there.
"After almost 10 days of work right now, we thought the point has come to make the decision."
