Michael Cortellessa and Bryce Outman called to US U15 camp

FC Dallas Academy players Michael Cortellessa and Bryce Outman were also called up to the US U15 Youth National Team for the 18th Torneo delle Nazioni set for April 25th to May 1st at several venues across Austria, Italy, and Slovenia. 

Head coach Tom Heinneman has called up 20 players for the 12-team tournament, his second training camp in charge of the U-15 MYNT.

In Group B, the USA will face Slovenia on Monday, April 25 (10 am CT) and Belgium on Wednesday, April 27 (11 am CT). 

Following pool play, the USA will play two more games as part of a four-team bracket with teams that finished in the same place in the group stage. The placement semifinals are set for Friday, April 29 and finals on Sunday, May 1.

Outman is a small winger or attacking mid with phenomenal skills. Cortellessa is a Ryan Hollingshead-like quality, play-anywhere really, but technically a defender.
