We all know that La Masia is a breeding ground for future generations of soccer talent. However, we don’t often get to view the tiny magic these youngsters create while developing their trade.
The MIC (Mediterranean Internationals Cup) pits opponents from all over the world against each other at several different age groups. It just so happened that the Barcelona and Real Madrid U12’s faced off in a mesmerizing tie.
As we’ve become accustomed to with their senior teams in La Liga, the Barca juniors dominated the match throughout. So much so, in fact, that the 2-0 scoreline was rather flattering for the Madridistas.
The highlight of the match was an absolutely bonkers long-range, dipping free kick from the Catalans’ number 10 that Messi himself would struggle to recreate. No doubt most professionals wish they had this kind of mad skill. Toni Caravaca is the name by the way. And don’t you dare forget it.
Leave it to the Barcelona youth to make the rest of us feel inadequate.
