LA Galaxy Academy forward Ruben Ramos was named to the U.S. U-15 Men’s Youth National Team that will compete in the 18th Torneo delle Nazioni, set for April 25 – May 1 at several venues across Austria, Italy and Slovenia. Ramos was one of 20 players called in for the 12-team tournament.

Placed in Group B, the USA will face Slovenia on Monday, April 25 (8:00 a.m. PT) and Belgium on Wednesday, April 27 (9:00 a.m. PT). Both matches will be streamed, with USA-Slovenia available via to-be-announced Slovenian FA platforms and USA-Belgium broadcast by the tournament organizers.

The placement semifinals are set for Friday, April 29 and finals on Sunday, May 1.

Launched in 2004, this year marks the 18th edition of the Torneo delle Nazioni as the competition returns in full force after playing a reduced four-team tournament last year. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the USA had participated in the last three editions of the Torneo delle Nazioni in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
