Video: Barcelona youth GK saves six penalties then scores winning goal against Atletico Madrid

Posted by Chris Wright

There are "Man of the Match" performances and then there are "MAN. OF. THE. MATCH" performances, and it's fair to say that 14-year-old Barcelona youth 'keeper Inaki Pena definitely put in the latter against Atletico Madrid's kiddywinks in the Torneo Internacional infantil Reino de Leon on Sunday morning.

With the cup game finishing 0-0 after 90 minutes, the tie went to penalties and little Inaki more than stepped up to the mark for his side, saving six of the nine Atleti penalties he faced before taking and scoring the winning "sudden death" spot-kick for Barca...



He may have been comprehensively overshadowed by his opposite number, but Atletico's young keeper also deserves a fair wodge of praise, successfully saving three of the penalties he faced and watching two more miss the target in the shoot-out, which Barca eventually won 4-3.

Ain't it just a wee bit galling knowing that every little tyke in that video is already ten times more skillful than you ever were or are ever going to be?

The little bloody brats.
