Friday is for teen idols scoring in matinees

[VIDEO PICK: Golazos] Three terrific goals scored this week by teenagers from Spain, England and Argentina offering a little inspiration to dig out the cleats, shake off the rust and be young once more this weekend.

Gerard Deulofeu is expected by nearly everyone to move from Barcelona B to the first team next season. He won European titles in 2011 and 2012 with Spain’s U-19 team, including best player in 2012.

Here the 19-year-old star scores against Getafe for Spain in a friendly preparing for this summer’s U-20 World Cup in Turkey ...

 

Last September, six days after his 16th birthday, Jerome Sinclair became the youngest player ever to feature for Liverpool. Seeing him pirouette and then maul the Wolves U-18 defenders while scoring for Liverpool, you can only wonder why he wasn’t picked sooner…

 

Finally, from the South American U-17 championships, just three minutes into Argentina’s 3-3 tie with Uruguay, Sebastian Driussi uncorks a bicicleta for the ages.

If you’re sitting on a goal this good, why wait?
