[USA UNDER-15 BOYS] The U.S. under-15 boys national team fell to Japan U-16s, 3-0, two days after both teams concluded play at the Torneo delle Nazioni in northern Italy.

Japan midfielder Sato Sota scored once in each half, sandwiching a strike by teammate Suga Daiki in a rain soaked game against the U.S.

Coached by Hugo Perez, the U.S. U-15s went 1-2-0 in tournament play against older competition, finishing third in Group C -- the group that ultimately produced both tournament finalists in Slovenia and Mexico.

The U-15s have a second friendly scheduled against Zambia on Thursday.

April 29 in Savogna d’Isonzo
USA 0 Japan 3. Goals: Sota 16, 42, Daiki 17. 
USA -- Lopez; Gruno, Uribe, Eves, Alfaro (Vines, 30, Kash, 40); Torres (Aguilera, 51), Marquez (Trujillo, 26), Gonzalez, Carranza; Marin (Wright, 26); Del Rosario (Raygoza, 54).

    They played against older, they had the best comp in there bracket, excuses excuses with the results lately. I feel like this reporting is incestual almost. Bring some more into the next camp with the money used to go to these overseas trips. To much talent in the US to ID at 14 and stop.
