Comment: 6 Soccer boys, most around 12 yo in shiny shorts and also shirtless in swim shorts and less, are portayed in this documentary before the 2000 EM championship. Also shower scenes (with towels). Some more supporting actors. Scenes include wet and muddy.

Soccer clubs include SV Planegg (Olli, Bavaria), Lobenstein (Marc), Stuttgart (Stephan), Bayer 04 Leverkusen (Fabian “Knipser” ~12, Tom ~18 yo), FC Carl Zeiss Jena (Stephan 17 yo). Not sure of the boy pictured.

There are several documentaries about Soccer (or similar, partly docus about boarding schools or boy choirs also playing Soccer). But I like this one very much. Not all boys are that handsome. One boy has longer hair (not the one pictured, but I think Marc). Maybe one of my first recordings with boys wearing compression shorts underneath. I’m not a Soccer fan and mainly knew this from Rugby. Wearing longer pants under shorts is or was very uncommon in Germany at least in the 90s, 80s and earlier and rarely shown in movies (see tag).

I don’t know all colors of the shorts. My favourite are this dark blue ones with medium blue compression shorts (also sitting). I think also white shorts and maybe red, maybe partly (longer) Adidas. Swim shorts dark blue and black. Indoor pool, hotel (?).

Also good bedroom scenes (partly at home, partly at a hotel, shirtless) both showing bunk beds. Bedroom blog rating 6.

There are some parts on a DVD (Fußballfieber – Aus dem Lebensalltag des Fußballnachwuchses) , 36 min. in total, but only for rent, mediendienste.info. Not to be confused with other DVDs with the same title. I hope for a rebroadcasting as I only have few VHS clips in very bad quality.

More infos on my other blog. Rating 9-10.
