Barcelona’s youth system highlight video is exactly what you’d expect

FC Barcelona’s YouTube account posted this video Thursday recapping their youth squads’ top 20 goals of the past season.

It’s mystifying.

Not only are these kids mostly smaller than a plush toy, but they can dribble like little mini Messis (dibs on that).

The shots are ridiculous, the runs are endless, and the passes are pinpoint.  No idea who the opposition is, but I feel bad for them. A kid scores directly off a corner!!!

Youth director at Barcelona Guillermo Amor has done a fantastic job, and there’s nothing you can do but unhinge your lower jaw because it will be hanging on the floor after the next 3 minutes and 54 seconds watching all the mini Messis scamper around the pitch.  He must bring some serious orange slices for halftime.
