As boring as soccer may be sometimes, it’s hard not to watch this video without a smile on your face. And hell, it’s a more interesting than anything soccer has done recently. Sorry, soccer fans.
Philippe Coutinho and Gini Wijnaldum, two professional Liverpool players (I’m not even going to pretend like I knew who these fellas were five minutes ago), decided to hit the field and go against 30 members of the pre-academy under 9s team. That’s right, folks — two verses 30. And let’s just say that these kids held their own pretty damn well against professionals.
Take a look at the great video below, and look out for the fantastic commenting throughout the game.
Two Professional Soccer Players Versus 30 Kids Makes For One Wild Game
Those professionals had a kid as their goalkeeper, so obviously that kid is the MVP. And as you can tell, it seems like the game ended in a tie, which is pretty insane when these two guys were completely outnumbered.
This awesome game was arranged by the club to coincide with the 22 youngsters signing their first professional contracts.
