[COPA MEXICO DE NACIONES] The U.S. under-15 boys national team is tipped as one of the top age group teams to come along in a long while, and it features three players who have already moved to foreign clubs in the squad that will be competing in the Copa Mexico de Naciones Aug. 7-19 in Mexico City.

U.S. U-17 national team head coach Richie Williams will be at the helm of the group that will serve as a corps for the next U-17 cycle.

The team includes Christian Albelo (Hoffenheim), Joe Gallardo (Monterrey) and Hugo Perez's nephew, Joshua Perez (Fiorentina).

It features two players each for the LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls academy programs, two from PDA and two from non-Development Academy club FC Richmond. Christian Pulisic of PA Classics was named to the U-15/16 East Conference Starting XI after leading his team with 15 goals during the season.

A core of the team traveled this spring to Italy, where it reached the semifinals of the Trofeo Della Nazioni.

The USA opens against Brazil on Saturday and will also face Uruguay and Panama in Group B. Group A consists of hosts Mexico, Chile, Paraguay and Canada while Group C contains Argentina, Costa Rica, Colombia and Cuba.

U.S. U-15 Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (2): Abraham Romero (LA Galaxy Academy), Kevin Silva (PDA)
DEFENDERS (7): Tyler Adams (New York Red Bulls Academy), Hugo Arellano (Chivas USA Academy), Daniel Barbir (PDA), Edwin Lara (Alliance Soccer Club), John Nelson (Internationals), Matthew Olosunde (New York Red Bulls Academy), Alexis Velela (San Diego Surf)
MIDFIELDERS (5): Christian Albelo (Hoffenheim/GER), Eric Calvillo (Real So Cal), Logan Panchot (St. Louis Scott Gallagher Missouri), Nicholas Taitague (FC Richmond), Alejandro Zendejas (FC Dallas Academy)
FORWARDS (6): Kevin Coleman (FC Richmond), Joe Gallardo (Monterrey/MEX), David Loera (Orlando City Academy), Joshua Perez (Fiorentina/ITA), Christian Pulisic (PA Classics), Haji Wright (LA Galaxy Academy).
