Slovenia's kindergarten project

We find out how children under the age of six are taking their first football steps in Slovenia.

Children as young as one are getting accustomed to a ball as part of a unique scheme in Slovenia that is being incorporated into kindergartens across the country. The UEFA Training Ground visited one such kindergarten, in Slovenia's oldest city, Ptuj, to find out more about the project.
