Incredible Under 11 Fan Support

It’s obvious that the soccer fan from professional team are passionate but check out the fans in the video below in the under 11 the Lech Cup. The video starts out with simple chanting but quickly escalates into something much more. Remember, we are talking about under 11 boys. This is not the senior teams of Manchester United versus Liverpool or Inter versus AC Milan.

It is true that when Jose Murinho says the fans in England truly live for soccer on Saturdays whereas in other countries they are more concerned with Friday or Sunday (note most English Premier League games on played on Saturday).

The next time you’re playing in a youth tournament show your friends and parents this video. Now imagine the pressure you’d face and the expectations that come with wearing a shirt like Tottenham.

I know one thing is for sure. I would love to play in this kind of atmosphere!

The idea for Goalden is to help other soccer players of all ages improve the many different aspects of their game. We began coaching youth teams and watching youth soccer all over Ontario. We watched semi-professional and professional teams and noticed how far the game still has to develop here. From that, we decided we want to help others obtain the best information as early as possible in their soccer careers. We want to educate readers about the game of soccer and the fine details that are often overlooked by coaches in North America.
