Adoracute Players' Kids: D'awwwwwwwwwwww!

Soccer is a sport for elite athleticism, skill, tenacity, grit and other words that bland analysts throw at players because they don't have many words in their vocabulary. It is also a sport for adoracute kids to be adoracute.

Professional soccer players may be really good at the sport, but they are not nearly as entertaining as their kids playing. Because, because, because, d'awwwwwwwwww!

When a large man is taken off in a friendly, his five-year-old son must go in as his replacement. New rule, book it, done.

I dare Geoff Shreeves to try and ruin Branislav Ivanovic's kid's day after that. Even Geoff thinks that the best, or at least tied for the best with the above and below because they all hit 100 on the 1-10 adoracute scale so you can't really separate them. They're all just the best.

He came so close to falling over during that stepover. So! Close! But seriously, d'awwwwww!
