Everton U-19s In The Dallas Cup

I live in the northern suburbs of Dallas, so I've had a great opportunity to watch the Everton U-19 team compete in this weeks' Dallas Cup, arguably the most prestigious youth football tournament in the word.

The Everton squad features Ross Barkley, who has of course already played several games at the EPL level this year. On several occasions watching Barkley this week, I marveled at the skills of one who truly seemed to be a man amongst boys.

I can't really provide too much of an in-depth analysis of the players I saw this week, as I'm just a silly Yank and since I had my two-year-old with me one game (which meant my eyes were just as frequently on him as the game) and, as evidenced below, I had my camera with me for the other, as, being a professional photographer, I wanted to take advantage of the incredible access -- the same as one would have at any youth soccer game -- to these amazing athletes.

I have a gallery of some of my favorite images from today's (Wednesday's) game, in which Everton defeated Club Bolivar (of Bolivia) 6-0. Unfortunately, it appears as though I can't insert images directly into a FanPost, so I'll link directly to a few in particular below to share with my fellow RBM readers.

Ross Barkley battles the Bolivian keeper.

Hallam Hope prepares to pass to Barkley, who scores.

Hope, again.

Conor Grant takes a corner.

Anton Forrester (also very impressive today) battles for the ball.

And, finally, an unhappy Barkley reacts to being fouled.

Enjoy!

(And as a nice PS, it appears that Everton FC will be using some of my photos on its website!)
