I've been a strong advocate for building the skills of youth players, while protecting them form the harsh lime light of the football media. I'm hoping at some point there will be a Canadian kid who has the skills that will light up the world and propel the national team to the World Cup. Until then we have to satisfy ourselves with young talent over seas.

Like this kid! His name is Noah Shawn and he's a youth player at Bayern Munich's academy in Germany. As the video shows he has amazing skill and control of the ball. The absolutely scary thing is....he's just 7. I'm a person who has to give credit where credit is due because he's simply amazing for his age. What I hope not to do or to happen is that this kid gets his head turned by the scum of the football world, and let's face it those kind of people are out there in the game trying to make a quick buck.

All I ask is that you take the video for what it is, a gifted boy doing his thing.
