You Tube Soccer Sweetness

By Uncategorized

You Tube is home to some pretty sweet soccer vids, both amateur and pro. I must admit, I’ve learned a few burn moves from You Tube over the past few years. I’ve also come across some amazing clips. There are thousands of them out there.

I thought it would be cool to highlight a few that I really like. I can’t really call these the “best” of You Tube soccer, because everybody has their own opinion of  what’s the best. So let’s just call these “You Tube Soccer Sweetness.”

Here are some some short, but sweet soccer clips. Check em out and tweet me what you think. @charityballnews
