Woodwork! What a goal this would have been: Jose Cevallos (Ecuador U20) v Brazil U20

These youngsters have got a lot of self-belief. Yesterday in an U18 match Nikita Korsun scored a magnificent long range strike for Belarus.

Yesterday also saw Brazil U20’s draw 1-1 with Ecuador. It could have been 2-0 to Ecuador if Jose Cevallos shot from a ridiculous position on the pitch would have landed a few inches to the right. Instead it hit the post.

At only 17 years of age Cevallos seems to have a bright future ahead of him in the game. His father, with the same name, managed 89 caps for Ecuador in goal and I’m sure Cevallos will hope to emulate him.
