Ipswich Town’s academy youngsters are about to go viral after the club’s under-14 side scored a sensational team goal against their Millwall counterparts that could have been produced in Spain rather than Suffolk.

Starting with a roll out from the goalkeeper, these Ipswich teenagers completed a further 12 passes, including a superb phase of one-touch play, before a tidy finish was provided in the opposition penalty area.

It is the type of goal that would often be seen on the training pitches of La Masia, the fabled Barcelona academy, but not one that would usually be associated with English youth teams, so it is certainly encouraging.

The introduction of a similar model into the English academies has been something long lobbied for, given the way Spain have been able to dominate football at both international and club level for the last seven or eight years.

Is this Ipswich goal a sign of things to come? Let’s hope so. Just imagine England playing like this in the future - we can but dream.
