USMNT coach Bruce Arena starts his second run in charge of the team with the annual January camp. Arena called in 32 MLS players for the camp starting on January 10. Two friendlies are on the camp schedule, Jan 29 against Serbia in San Diego and Feb 3 in Chattanooga against Jamaica.
“With games at the end of the month and the World Cup Qualifiers in March, this is going to be a critical time for us,” Arena said. “It’s important that we come in and quickly establish an understanding of what we are about and how we go about building our team. As for the players, we are coming into this with an open mind, so it’s a huge opportunity for them."
