Former Galaxy forward Mike Magee will be returning to StubHub Center on Monday after earning an invitation to the U.S. national team's winter training camp. Magee, who won Major League Soccer's MVP award last season after tying for the league lead with 21 goals, will be joined in the monthlong camp by former Galaxy teammates Landon Donovan and Omar Gonzalez. The camp, the longest and most extensive ahead of June's World Cup in Brazil, will be split across two continents. After six days in Carson, the roster will be trimmed to 23 players and the team will decamp for the U.S. team's summer training base in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for 12 days of twice-daily sessions.
