CHICAGO (June 10, 2015) – Despite a goal by Mario Licor to put the U.S. on the lead early in the second half, the U.S. Under-15 Boys’ National Team fell short 2-1 against Argentina in Buenos Aires on Wednesday.
A brace by Argentina’s Facundo Colidio erased the USA lead that Licor had created in the 45th, after Colidio equalized in the 52nd minute of the 80-minute match.
The U-15s fought hard to preserve the draw, but a second goal from Colidio in stoppage time was the difference, giving the hosts the win.
Next, the U-15 BNT will face Paraguay on June 12 as it looks to wrap up its foreign training camp.
