Watch Sunderland's first team take on the under-8 squad

Monday February 23rd, 2015


Sunderland's first team got all it could handle in a recent practice when the players faced off against the organization's under-8 team (yes, pro soccer clubs have under-8 teams).

The young guns all-out style causes a heap of trouble for the more seasoned veterans, and midfielder Adam Johnson even resorts to taking a dive at one point.

Eventually the Premier League players get a little bit of momentum going their way, but Sunderland fans should be very excited about how the club will be looking around 2030.
