You can watch U15 Concacaf Championships at this link below.  Canada beat Mexico 2-0.  The game featured 2004s.  These players will be 22 years old in 2026.

I've watched the full Concacaf game many times.   Based on performance during this match strongest players were:

  • Jean-Aniel Assi (Montreal) 10/10 was a strong winger and Canada's most dominant threat
  • Dino Bontis (Toronto) 10/10 earned the shutout as the #1 with great shot-stopping and even better distribution
  • Nathan Saliba (Montreal) 9/10 creative attacking midfielder with mobility
  • Matteo Campagna (Vancouver) 8/10 steady "stay at home" defender
  • Loic Cloutier (Montreal) 7/10 defused Mexico attacking threats
  • Hugo Mbongue (Toronto) 6/10 good size and hold-up play
  • Jahkeele Stanford-Rutty (Toronto) 6/10 nice touch but often invisible and not threatening
  • Joshua Gordon (Toronto) 5/10 often beat by Mexico's Cruz down the wing, weak positioning/defending (2005)
  • Jordan Lemos (Toronto) 5/10 was steady as midfielder but often held on to possession far too long

The future is bright, lots of Hype on Standford, Rutty and Saliba.

Thanks for the link.  I enjoyed it. Do you have links to other videos from that competition?

don’t agree with your ratings though  

I thought Assi did very little, gave the ball away a lot, and was beaten for headers and he was the biggest guy on the pitch. He did have a couple of decent balls played to rutty including one that gave him a scoring chance  

saliba was ok, nothing overly stood out. He also missed his clear cut chance on goal from a good ball from rutty 

cloutier and campagna were solid in the centre but they weren’t tested for pace or one on one so difficult to really get a good read from this match 

I thought Gordon actually pretty much shut down Cruz and cruz looked the best player on the park. So much so that they moved Cruz inside in the second half to get him away from him (but to little effect). He’s quite big and solid and didn’t give Cruz much space to operate

rutty showed the most to me and created a couple of chances but he didn’t seem the class of Cruz but then again Cruz got more of the ball. Mbongue was a close second but had little service; when he did he showed he could hold up the ball and he was very strong 

Henry looked a weak player as did lemos and stojadinovic. As Henry was the number 10, we really missed someone in the center who could be a fulcrum in the attack  

bontis did all that was required but I didn’t think he made any outstanding saves and his distribution was fine but not outstanding

at the end of the day, Mexico dominated us in the first half but we kept our shape well and they only had only half chances. We rarely got out of our end as they pressured us when we got the ball and we couldn’t hang onto it. And we scored with a route one ball from a centre half in our own half which mbongue out muscled the smaller defender. 

in the second half, we were better and had the better of the play and chances but not by a significant margin. Mexico seemed to get frustrated as the time went out, ran out of ideas and resorted to the long ball which played into our hands as we were generally bigger and stronger. 

the side looks good and can hold its own against Mexico but I wouldn’t say it’s better so let’s not get too ahead of ourselves here. Mexico hit two posts which could easily have gone in on other days. Plus had way more half chances then us. 

Anyway. My two cents worth
