Barcelona are the undisputed best team in world football following their win at the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan earlier in December. 

There was never much doubt about it and the Blaugrana did not need the trophy to be considered the top club in world football, however, their achievement just rubber stamps their position.

The likes of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Neymar and Luis Suarez produce some scintillating football that leaves defences bamboozled week in, week out.

But it's not just the stars of Barcelona that are capable of playing beautiful moments. The philosophy of slick, passing football is ingrained into players throughout the club, from their Prebenjamin side all the way to the first-team.

It is a structure that was introduced by Johan Cruyff and has made La Masia the most fabled academy in the world, producing talents such as Messi, Iniesta, Xavi and Sergio Busquets.

And Barcelona's Cadet B side, from the 14-15 age group, produced yet another example of their philosophy with a goal that was voted Goal of the Week on Barca TV.

In a move that consisted of seven passes - starting with the goalkeeper - it took just 17 seconds for the ball to go from end-to-end and nestle in the opposing goal.

It was a slick bit of play that involved the sort of incisive passing we come to expect from Luis Enrique's side.

La Masia's production line to the first-team may have slowed in recent years, but they are still providing top quality players for clubs in the top leagues in European football.
