The Mexico under-15 boys national team called in
five Americans for the training camp being held this week in Mexico City at the Mexican federation's Centro de Alto Rendimiento.
They include Antonio Leone, one of the top defenders for the USA at the 2019 Concacaf U-15 Championship.
The other four players who attended the recent camp the Mexican federation held for Mexican-American players in Southern California:
Abraham Ramirez (FC Golden State)
Sebastian Rincon (LA Breakers)
Miguel Avalos (Pachuca)
Samuel Mendoza (Barca Residency)
Avalos (No. 10 in photo) hails from Santa Rosa California, and was called up by Mexico's U-15s after being spotted at Sueno Alianza 2018. He played for Mexico in the Concacaf U-15 Championship, where Mexico was eliminated in the quarterfinals.
Two other Americans from Mexico's Concacaf team -- NYCFC academy goalkeeper Torres Rayon Jared and midfielder Alejandro Alcala from the Stockton (Calif.) TLJ Rebels -- are not at the current Mexico U-15 camp.
Of the 18 players Mexico took to Florida for the Concacaf tournament, only five are at the Mexico City camp attended by 24 players.
