Pro:Direct Eleven versus Spurs at Wembley Stadium

Pro:Direct Eleven played against Spurs at Wembley Stadium

Make the cut, make the shirt, own the moment. Next level players from across all of our UK centres were selected to face Premier League Tottenham Hotspur U17s at Wembley. They were lucky enough to wear the new black and gold Pro:Direct 11 shirt and challenged themselves against the Premier League's elite youth players. The two day experience featuring a training camp and match day saw PD11 players receive a special delivery of Nike Mercurial 'Dream Speed' boots courtesy of Brazil legend Gilberto Silva and the famous Pro:Direct Boot Van. With 93 caps for Brazil and 170 games for Arsenal, Gilberto gave our lads an inspirational start to their preparations and invaluable tips from his experience at the top level.

The players from across our UK centres are a formidable force and must take credit for pushing Spurs all the way for 90 minutes after only the previous day's training camp for preparation as a squad. An elite level debut for the Pro:Direct 11 Nike kit and team, and a truly unforgettable experience for our players.
