Camp "Last Chance" 

December, 17, 2009

The invitations have been sent out, and the list of attendees to the U.S. national team's January camp could be announced as early as Friday.

For some MLS and Scandinavian-league players, it may be the last chance to grab a spot on the 2010 World Cup team; for a few youngsters, it may be the first chance to make a lasting impression that will matter far beyond next June.

For exclusive insight into the U.S. team's roster, you must be an ESPN Insider.
