MLS All-Star coach Bruce Arena has selected San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Bobby Convey as an All-Star to replace injured Chivas USA defender Jonathan Bornstein.

Convey will be a member of the 23-man roster that will take on 2009 English Premier League champion Manchester United on July 28 in Houston.

Bornstein injured his right knee on Sunday in the 23rd minute of Chivas USA's SuperLiga match against the Houston Dynamo. He is expected to miss 2 to 3 weeks.

Convey has appeared in all 14 of the Earthquakes' matches and has assists on eight of the team's 18 goals this season. This is Convey's third career All-Star selection (2001, 2004).
