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.
