Bulls Abroad: Marcello Borges and Tyler Adams start for US U-20s vs Costa Rica

A satisfying conclusion to their December training camp for both the RBNY products involved and the USA U-20s overall.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The US U-20 Men's National Team wrapped up its Costa Rica training camp with a second friendly against Los Ticos' U-20s, securing a 0-0 draw. Though results were surely not the first priority of the trip - which saw the U-20s get a closer look at the facilities they'll be playing in for the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship - it was doubtless satisfying for the squad to get through two games unbeaten against the team that will be hosting the regional tournament in February.

After the preceding 4-0 win for the USA, coach Tab Ramos rotated his squad, handing a start to one of the goalscorers in the U-20s' last outing: New York Red Bulls' Tyler Adams.

Adams and fellow RBNY Academy product Marcello Borges (who started both games in Costa Rica) are presumably in the frame for selection for the forthcoming January fitness camps, and both might hope to subsequently be picked for the roster that heads back to Costa Rica for the CONCACAF Championship.
