Help with analysis please! Here is a SWG-game, where I get crushed! where did I go wrong?

[Event "Sicilian Wing Gambit"]
[Site "board #234465"" target="_blank"> #234465";]
[Date "2002.06.16"]
[White "paulvalle"]
[Black "erreur2002"]
[Result "0-1"]
[WhiteElo "1821"]
[BlackElo "2193"]
[TimeControl "1/259200"]
[Mode "ICS"]
[Termination "normal"]

1. e4 c5 2. b4 cxb4 3. a3

Sicilian Defense, Wing Gambit, Marshall Variation

3...d5 4. exd5 Qxd5 5. Nf3 e5 6. axb4 Bxb4 7. c3 Bc5 8. Na3 Nf6 9. Nb5 O-O 10. d4

There are other moves here. But I wanted to try this, as it is only mentioned by Romeo, he calles it the "Center Attack"


Probably the best move

11. Ba3 Rd8

Here 11...Re8?! got played in Rabadan-Nunez Casado, Corr. 1971 Next time I think I'll play 11.Nxe5 instead

12. Be7 Rd7 13. Bxf6 gxf6 14. Be2 a6?!

This move is useless, and give White some chance of attack

Can someone find any improvements for White in the next 6 moves?

15. c4 Qe6 16. d5 Qg4 17. O-O Qg7 18. Nd2 Rd8 19. Bh5 f5 20. Nb3 Nd7!!

This is the beginning of the end for White, Black shows exellent tecnique:

21. Nd6 Nf6 22. Bxf7+ Kh8 23. Nxc8 Raxc8 24. Be6 Rxc4 25. Qd3 Rg4 26. g3 e4 27. Qd2 Rxg3+! 28. hxg3 Qxg3+ 29. Kh1 Qh3+ 30. Kg1 Bc7 31. f4 exf3 32. Ra4 Re8! 33. Rf2 Re7 0-1

Yes 18.Qc2 instead of 18.Nd2
18...Bc5 forced (18...Rd8? 19.c5)
19.Bd3 Rd8 20.Nh4 and you see the thematic exploit of the weakness of the e4-f5 complex.

After the played 18.Nd2 Black gets time to set up his counterplay: 18...Rd8 19.Qc2?! Bh3 20.Bf3 f5 with complex play (21.Kh1 Bg4 22.Bxg4 fxg4). Anyway, this is better than 19.Bh5, that leads to a disavantadgeous liquidation.

20.Qf3 should be tried in place of 20.Nb3.

21.Nd6? 21.d6 was the last hope; even so, after 21...Nf6 22.c5 Bd7 23.Nc3 Ba7 24.g3 e4! Black has a nice attack.

Black has now a clear advantage.

25.Qd3? Moving the King to safety was needed.

27.Qd2?? loses badly, but even the only move 27.Qc2 leads, after 27...Nxd5, to a very unpleasant position for White.

My friends I`m seeing a horrible, well deserved defeat of Mèxico against U.S.A., so I`m not very concentrated, but what`s wrong with 15. 0-0?
