Gianluca Busio captains USA U-17s in 4 Nations Tournament finale vs. Denmark

Sporting Kansas City midfielder Gianluca Busio captained United States U-17 Men’s National Team on Monday in the final match of the 4 Nations Tournament at Sportspark Marsdijk in Assen, Netherlands.

After defeating Mexico and Netherlands in their first two games of the tournament, the Americans were forced to settle for second place after taking a 4-1 loss to Denmark. The Danes raced out to a 4-0 lead before Noah Jones put the U.S. U-17s on the scoreboard in the 65th minute.

Busio also started in the United States' 2-1 victory over rivals Mexico in last Thursday's tournament opener before resting in Saturday's 3-1 triumph against hosts Netherlands.
