Cunningham finally getting 'fair chance'

Jeff Cunningham, the 33-year-old veteran forward who has long racked up goals in MLS is aiming to finally solidify a spot on the U.S. national team, which he reappeared after a four-year absence last November and scored his first international goal in a friendly against Denmark.

He is the oldest player in Coach Bob Bradley's training camp as the team prepares for Saturday's friendly against Honduras.
