New York Red Bulls Academy product Marcello Borges is in England with the USA Men's U-20 National Team for the Four Nations Tournament. The competition sees the USA U-20s take on counterparts from Germany, England, and the Netherlands. Germany and England are qualified for next year's U-20 World Cup, so the tournament offers USA coach Tab Ramos a chance to evaluate his players against opponents he will hope to see again in 2017.
The USA's tournament kicked off on October 5 against Germany. Borges was among the starters.
