If you head just a little south of Barcelona (well, Greece anyway) it seems you'll stumble across a team of hungry, young Tiki-Taka tyros who look capable of giving their Catalan elders a real run for their money.

A few months back a video emerged of AO Giannina, a team of Greek children, scoring a wonderful passing goal that Barcelona themselves would have been proud to call their own.

The Greeks' young rivals were well and truly put on the carousel (unfortunately, given their age they actually enjoyed it) as they moved the ball around in true La Masia-style before popping the ball in the back of the net. Even the goalkeeper got involved.

Now they are back with a bang, scoring an even better goal. In a 7-0 win those little Greek gallavanters took control the ball from kick-off, nonchalantly stroking the ball around in their own area as their opponents squirrelled about in the vain hope of getting the briefest of touches.

Eventually working their way  forward thanks to some neat footwork from the goalkeeper and fly down the wing, working their way into the box (then give it away a little bit) before a young chap rounds off the flowing move with a stylish overhead kick. It really must be seen to be believed.
