  • Love how we are going for footballers who were born in 1999 and later (age 12). It shows improvement. The goal should be to get 6 year olds but that is not the near future. What matters is that we are going young and that is great. <div><br></div><div>2026 World Cup is seeming the more realistic goal now.</div>
