[TORNEO DELLE NAZIONI] The U.S. under-15 boys national team closed out play at the Torneo delle Nazioni with a 3-2 win over China's under-16 national team thanks to goals from Hanif Wright, younger brother of U-17 star Haji Wright, Marty Raygoza and Lucas Del Rosario.

Del Rosario also scored in the 2-1 loss to Mexico's U-16s. The USA was playing against older competition throughout the first international tournament for this current crop of U-15s. It fell to host Slovenia, 4-0, in its opener.

Slovenia won the group with a perfect record and joined the other group winners, Brazil and Chile, and Mexico, the best second-place team, in the semifinals.

The team will next gather for a domestic training camp in July at U.S. Soccer's National Training Center in Carson, Calif.

April 27 in Miren, Slovenia
USA 3 China 2. Goals: Wright 3, Raygoza 45, Del Rosario 56; Liu 51, 61.
