Video: Wonder goal from kids in their wonder years

7 Comments

The people we will thank, in no certain order, for pointing us to this one:

  • NBC teammate Arlo White.
  • The clevers at MLSSoccer.com, who apparently tipped Arlo to the goal.
  • The coach of this bunch of talented children in Greece, who clearly has encouraged the lads to be calm on the ball, even in the back … and not just to hoof it forward willy-nilly.

It’s a longer version, in my mind, of the famous Dutch goal in the 1974 World Cup final, where they scored before Germany every touched the ball.*

*And that is connection enough to satisfy the “pro” element of ProSoccerTalk.

Enjoy:
