CHICAGO – San Antonio FC midfielder Leo Torres was among the selections announced on Tuesday to the United States U-15 National Team that will compete in the 2019 Torneo delle Nazioni in Gradisca, Italy, with the side set to kick off its campaign this Sunday in the 16-team event.
Torres became the youngest signing in USL Championship history this past February, and this past weekend was named in the gameday squad as a substitute for SAFC’s contest against Real Monarchs SLC.
Joining Torres in the squad is forward Austin Brummett, who this past Saturday made his professional debut in the Championship for Tacoma Defiance against Phoenix Rising FC. In the process Brummett became the youngest player in the Championship’s history aged 15 years, two months and six days old on his debut.
The United States will face India on April 28, Slovenia on April 29 and regional rival Mexico on April 30 in the tournament’s group stage. Steve Klein, Academy Director at U.S. Soccer Development Academy club PA Classics will serve as the U-15s’ head coach for the camp. The tournament will serve as preparation for this summer’s Concacaf U-15 Championship.
