Mexico's U-15 boys load up on Americans for Mexico City camp

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.

    I wonder if Tony Meola reads articles about Mexico's identification and selection of US citizens?

    I just read the article and can't tell you their names, but that doesn't mean that some US Hispanic players are not being identified and selected by Mexico. And they aren't the only ones looking for US citizens. The LA Breakers, one of the clubs mentioned, is partnered with La Liga in Spain.

    I feel so much better now, especially knowing that Earnie Stewart is now in charge of the WNT program. :)
