New U-15s show promise at U.S. boys national team camp

For the sake of organizing their scrimmages against outside competition and giving coaches a better handle on evaluating the 48-player group, the U.S. U-15 national team was broken into three squads during the recent weeklong camp that wrapped in Carson, Calif.

Unofficially, though, the camp was broken into two teams: those that had attended the 19-player trek to Croatia last month, and those who had not.

The U-15 squad wrapped up camp with a couple of scrimmages, a 1-0 loss against Arsenal, and a 3-0 win against Cosmos Academy West. Goal scorers Adonis Amaya and Michael Seaton were among those that impressed.
