This American U11 team is better than you

Written by Jahmal Corner

American soccer nerds will rejoice at this video.

A couple minutes into it, and one might think this is an actual training game for a U11 FC Barcelona team.

Except that it’s not – it’s the recent semifinal of the Cal South State Cup Semifinal between FC Barcelona and Arsenal (two area clubs).

Watch for as long as you can – it runs long – but it’s impossible not to marvel at the playing style of FC Barcelona in particular, as they possess the ball extremely well for 10-year-olds.

Can’t help but wonder how the Arsenal team felt as they looked like they were chasing ghosts for most of the highlights.

    I like what I see. We just need to get kids this age playing on a smaller field. No need to play on a big field (and big goals) until about 13yrs old.

      We have a a team on East Coast – CRSC 01 Carolina Select IDF – out of Cary, NC which does the same exact thing. Play beautiful soccer and are so much fun to watch. For them possession is lifestyle and they almost hold teh ball for 90 % in all their matches.
