“We’ll score when we grow old.”

These are just some of the magical quotes from a Spanish football team of 5 and 6-year olds who have never won a game and never scored a goal, but are arguably, the essence of sportsmanship. Well done to them and their coaches and parents. Sit back and enjoy this truly amazing little film.

This post is partly in response to a challenging article written by James Causey of the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinal , called Sport Without Justice.  He despairs at the disgusting incidents from youth sports.  Combine this with bounty payments paid by professional clubs for injuring players – and it all paints a bleak picture.

However the wonderful video above demonstrates the essence of great sportsmanship. Sit back and enjoy. Move over thugs, here comes sportsmanship at its purest.
