[TORNEO DELLE NAZIONI]U.S. under-15 national team coach Hugo Perezwill take 18 players to the 12-team Torneo Delle Nazioni that begins Friday. The tournament is based in the Italian city of Gradisca d’Isonzo, but the USA's first-round games against Slovenia, Mexico and China will be played in nearby Slovenia.

The U.S. roster includes 14 of the 18 who participated in both in the trip to the United Arab Emirates in January and training camp in Carson, Calif., in March. Tijuana defender Angel Uribe, one of four foreign-based players, returns for the first time since the October 2013 camp.

Missing will be U-15 star Nicholas Taitague, who is injured, plus Edwin Lara and Tyler Adams, who are playing a year up with the U.S. U-17 national team.

The tournament includes two other four-team groups: Brazil, Israel, Italy and Zambia in Group A and Azerbaijan, Chile, Croatia and Japan in Group B. The three group winners and best second-place team advance to the semifinals on April 29.

Roster by Position:
GOALKEEPERS (2):Carlos Avilez (FC Dallas academy), Erik Lopez (LA Galaxy academy).
DEFENDERS (6): Jose Alfaro (Morelia/MEX), McKay Eves (San Diego Surf), Kyle Gruno (Leicester City/ENG), Gabe Kash (St. Louis Scott Gallagher Metro), Angel Uribe (Tijuana/MEX), Sam Vines (Colorado Rapids academy).
MIDFIELDERS (4): Raul Aguilera (Orlando City academy), Jose Carranza (D.C. United academy), Jonathan Gonzalez (Monterrey/MEX), Juan Pablo Torres (Georgia United).

    As I said before. Something just feels off with the demographics of this team. I fell like Perez is slightly skewed in his line up. 4/18 names are Latino in the line up. What kind of message does this send to the rest of the nation? This game is for everyone...everyone. Thats why its the worlds game. Not realistic.

    I hope that comment is tongue in cheek
