There’s never any shortage of drama when the weekend comes around at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. The youth teams are in action, and some of the action can be just as good as what the first team provide! We certainly saw an example of that this week thanks to Toni Caravaca of the Barça U12 C team in a game with Cubelles. His goal bore an uncanny resemblance to one scored by Ronaldinho ten years ago.
That was the one the Brazilian superstar got at Stamford Bridge in the 2004/05 season. With Carvalho between Petr Cech and the goalposts, Ronaldinho stood calm on the edge of the area and stabbed the ball with his toe to send it looping goalward. A goal that looked to have qualified Barça for the Champions League quarter finals, although Chelsea ended up winning 5.4 on aggregate. And now Caravaca has repeated the same magic in a 7-a-side youth game. Check out this video! The two goals are almost mirror images of each other. Toni … You’re a hero!
