The editorial staff at MLSsoccer.com is looking back over the year with out Best of 2010 awards, running Dec. 13 through Jan. 2. Each day we'll hand out an award in a variety of categories culled from the storylines of Major League Soccer and US international players, including Biggest Controversy, Broadcaster Call of the Year and the Moment of the Year.
Today the focus falls on the Breakout Star of the Year, and there was little argument that San Jose's Chris Wondolowski was the man of the moment in 2010.
By the end of this week, Bob Bradley will name the 30-man roster for the US national team's camp ahead of its Jan. 22 friendly against Chile at the Home Depot Center. As usual, the focus will be on youth, and the roster will likely feature mostly MLS players as well as a smattering of European pros on break.
Here's a look at the men we think Bradley should call:
Kevin Hartman - The last go-round for FC Dallas' netminder?
Matt Pickens - The MLS Cup-winning 'keeper gets rewarded for his efforts with a camp call-up.
The U-20 teams from the United States and Canada are expected to compete for two of the four World Cup qualification spots up for grabs during April's 2011 CONCACAF Championship. Over the next few days, they will have a good measuring stick upon which to assess their progress: each other.
The pair will play matches on Dec. 16 and Dec. 18 in Sunrise, Fla.
