The quality at Barcelona runs all the way down to the junior teams as this goal from Marc Jurado demonstrates.
You may have seen some remarkable goals, scored in very quick timeframes across the professional game but this goal from Marc Jurado for the Barcelona Under-9 side, has to be one of the fastest goals ever scored at that level.
He didn’t even really do anything spectacular. The other side kicked off, badly, he ran onto the ball and then slotted it into the net with a very cool finish which demonstrates just why Barcelona have arguably the best youth system in the world.
The finish really wouldn’t have looked out of place had it been in any professional league in England and this footage could well have some top European sides getting their representatives involved to go and watch this kid playing, who seems to have a great maturity beyond his years.
Hats off to the opposition player trying to pass back to one of his own teammates because it’s a superb assist, straight into the line of Jurado making it very easy for him to quickly get control of the ball.
