    Woof.

    Netherlands were knocked down a peg pretty well by the reigning Asian champs Japan. 3 - 0 and the Netherlands looked completely toothless. Very poor showing from one of the pre-tournament favourites. The Dutch had no answer at all for Wakatsuki.

    France on the other hand comfortably dispatched Chile. Aouchiche in particular had a standout display.

    Don't know too much about either the US or Senegal teams but looks like a pretty one sided affair with Senegal winning 4-1.

    Angola get a goal at the death. Heartbreaking for Canada but they played well for this one.

    @Ajacied, @YNWA14, Netherlands U16 are playing in a tournament in the USA starting on Thursday and all the games will be streamed on some combination of the US Soccer twitter, Facebook and YouTube platforms.

    The other three participants are USA U17, Turkey U16 and USA U16. I don’t know what year the Netherlands players will be from this year. It would normally be the 2004’s, but this year’s tournament is a different than most years with the format. The USA is sending the U17 back ups that didn’t make the U17 WC, which is the 2002’s. The US U16’s at this tournament are the 2003’s. I don’t know what year the Turkey U16’s are.

    Netherlands plays US U16 Thursday at 3:30 PM Eastern Time, Turkey U16 on Saturday at 3:30 PM Eastern Time and then US U17 on Monday at 6:30 PM Eastern Time.

    Barcelona and Chelsea both out of the UEFA Youth League in the group stages for the first time after today’s results.

    Curtis Jones run the show for Liverpool in the Napoli trashing, and their rightback Neco Williams had a good game attackingwise as well.

    Good joke. You’ll finish first place. Could Barcelona give up three goals in the first half at home to Paderborn?

    Obviously as the youngest goal scorer ever in the competition Youssoufa Moukoko now becomes the youngest ever player to record a hat trick in the YCL. I doubt that record is broken for a very, very long time. He JUST turned 15 years old and his numbers are just insane: 56 games, 90 goals and 16 assists at the u17 level, 20 games, 24 goals and 7 assists at the u19 level and he won't be 16 until NEXT November. He's also not some physically dominant player either which makes it all the more impressive, IMO.

    I hope he’s in the squad when 2021 starts. Haaland and Alcacer as the strikers to start next season, Moukoko when he turns 16 joins them.
