Grande Sports Academy, Casa Grande, AZ – Good news is coming from the U.S. U15 Boys National Soccer Team training camp in California. Three players from the Grande Sports Academy’s Real Salt Lake – Arizona U16 soccer academy team: Christian Herrera, Sebastian Saucedo and Adolfo “Fito” Ovale were called to play for the U.S. U15 Boys National Soccer Team.
On Thursday, September 6, the US Under-15 BNT played two scrimmages in Carson, CA against Arsenal FC U16 and LA Galaxy U16 soccer teams. The boys all played an influential role in the 4-0 win against Arsenal FC U16, a Southern California Development Academy team. Christian Herrera (GK) played well in the first half and kept his net untouched. In the second half, substitute goalkeeper Justin Vom Steeg had a quiet evening as the U.S. held Arsenal to zero shots on goal. The U15 BNT ends camp with an intrasquad scrimmage on September 7 with the boys returning to Grande Sports Academy the next day in joining the team for a well deserved free weekend.
Starting Lineup for the US Under-15 Boys National Soccer Team:
Christian Herrera; David Chavez, Sean Wilson, Maximilliano Stiegwardt, Hugo Arellano; Adolfo Ovalle, Sebastian Saucedo, Christian Pulisic; Coy Craft, Joe Gallardo, Jorge Ruiz
