The US Club Soccer-run id2 International Tour is one of the highlights of the national youth soccer calendar. Once a year about this time, a hand-picked selection of some of the top U14 players in the country embarks on a tour of one country or another: Argentina, Italy, the Netherlands.

This year was Spain’s turn. And the tour is off to a roaring start.

This represents the first video journal for the tour, which hosted current pro players like Christian Pulisic (BVB) and Danny Barbir (West Brom) in the past. If there’s a future pro on this roster – and the numbers suggest that likelihood is high – you could be watching him blossom before your eyes.
