Abu Dhabi, UAE (Thursday, Nov. 27, 2003) - U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team attacking midfielder Bobby Convey was designated by head coach Thomas Rongen as the captain not only for his play on the field, but almost more importantly for the immeasurable amount of experience he has garnered over the past few years. Only 20, Convey has already played in an Under-17 World Championship, an Under-20 World Youth Championship, and was the most capped player for the full Men’s National Team with 15 appearances in 2003. Plus, there’s the four years at the professional level with D.C. United, which basically puts Convey at the top in the U.S. among 20-year-olds with big game experience. As UAE '03 starts, Convey takes a quick look back to Argentina ’01 and ahead to the task at hand.
