US Women's Team 'Embarrassed' By Under 15's Boys Academy Team

Going into an office in England right now you'd almost certainly find someone exclaiming that the office team could beat Sunderland, it happened in our office today, but the truth is the gap between professional and amateur is too big, right?

Of course we'd all like to think that the partnership of Keith in accounting and Graham in HR up front together would be a lethal partnership even against a Premier League side.

Don't forget Gary from I.T, he might spend all day saying "Have you tried switching it off and on again" but he's like a cat between the sticks.

The truth is that unless you're harbouring some Conference players in your office you wouldn't even get a sniff against the postmen and bank clerks of San Marino.

However one team of amateurs managed to take on and defeat the World Cup winning USA women's team, not just amateurs but under 15 boys!

According to the FC Dallas website, via CBS Sports, the World Cup winners went down 5-2 to their younger and opponents.

Of course, although not being reported by Dallas, we can assume that the result on Sunday won't have caused much concern for Jill Ellis as it wasn't a proper match, or at least that's what we're hoping!

USA women take on Russia women in a friendly tonight, the first time Carli Lloyd and co will play together since the She Believes Cup earlier in the year, when they lost to England's women.

The Dallas under 15 boys will certainly have bragging rights, for now at least.
