Gothenburg's fields of dreams

An event that gave the world one of its first glimpses of stars including Andrea Pirlo and Xabi Alonso, the Gothia Cup is the world's biggest grassroots tournament with as many as 4,320 games played on 91 pitches over one week in Gothenburg. The UEFA Training Ground travels to Sweden to find out more.
