The men’s Nike Friendlies kicks off on Wednesday, Nov. 29 as a new cycle begins for the U.S. Under-17 Men’s National Team.
There’s a long way to go between now and the U17 World Cup in 2019, not to mention a professional future for the players called into camp for this week’s friendlies.
However, there are several standout players that have already shown promise. Gianluca Busio (Sporting KC) and George Bello (Atlanta United) have already signed first team deals with their respective MLS franchises.
Keep an eye on these five players during this week’s competition.
