The U.S. Under-15 Boys National Team wrapped up its trip to the Torneo delle Nazioni on Sunday, losing 2-1 against Portugal in the third-place game.

It marked a return to action of sort for the U.S. youth setup, as the pandemic limiting opportunities for the U.S. youth setup. The weeklong trip to Europe finish with a win, a draw and two losses, though the performances certainly overshadowed the results.

For the players born in 2007, which comprised the bulk of the roster (Nimfasha Berchimas is the lone 2008 that made the roster), it was a positive trip overall.

From tying Slovenia, coming from behind to beat Belgium, and a pair of one-goal losses against Italy and Belgium, there is plenty to look at from the U.S. U15 perspective.

While it’s far too early to draw any conclusions from the level of the age group, it is a positive first impression. The team showed depth in a variety of positions, and a number of players come away with a tremendous experience under their belts.
