USA Downs Brazil 2-1 in Final Group Match at 13th Delle Nazioni Tournament

SLOVENIA (April 28, 2016) – The U.S. Under-16 Boys’ National Team defeated Brazil 2-1 in its final group match at the 13th Delle Nazioni Tournament.

With little action in the first half, the U.S. turned to some second half subs to try to create a more incisive attack. The second half strategy worked out in the 38th minute when sub Konrad de la Fuente tallied thanks to fellow sub Jose Rivas with the assist.

An unfortunate own goal by Eduardo Blancas gave Brazil the equalizer in the 59th minute of the match. But just minutes later, the U.S. regained the lead after two late subs combined for a goal when John Hilton assisted Marcelo Palomino for the game winner.

The U.S. will face England on April 29 with a chance to place 5th in the tournament.
