Abu Dhabi, UAE (Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2003) - Ramadan, the holy fasting month, came to an end today, which means the entire country will begin their three-day long celebration. While it might be nice to join them, the U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team would rather be celebrating a little over three weeks from now, so the players will be doing its final preparations the next three days as they get set to take on Paraguay on Nov. 29 for their first match of the FIFA World Youth Championship. The team was busy today as it had a morning practice session and a friendly match in the evening with fellow CONCACAF qualifier Panama. The day also saw the arrival of Santino Quaranta, Justin Mapp and Freddy Adu, who are all glad to be with the team. Read on for more about what the U-20s are up to.
