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.

Germany got the first goal, scored by Hoffenheim's Philipp Ochs.

And that was all that was required.

The USA's next opponent, the Netherlands, lost to host nation England in its opening game.
