We’re headed back to the MLS for this week’s Must Watch – not the men’s side, but the youth league called MLS Next. This league is another avenue for youth players to play at the highest level. The top club teams from around the country go up against each other and against the MLS youth programs. Presently, the 10-month season is ending with the top 32 teams for U15, U16, U17 and U19 age groups battling to earn the title of inaugural MLS Next Cup Champions. The short highlight linked above is an exhibit in how an individual player’s execution of skill and willingness to score ignites the entire team’s passion for the beautiful game!
