Tom Byer, a renowned youth football coach, has trained more than 500,000 young players in his 20 year long career.

On the day, he came to the school located at the Xi'an International High-tech Industries Development Zone and taught 40 students major movements and football skills. The young footballers were all excited about the training and held a match under the guidance of Tom Byer.

"No matter whether it's in Xi'an or other places in China, I'm not just teaching basic football skills, but also intending to arouse the youth's interests for football for their entire lives," Byer said at a meeting held after the training.

In response to Byer, Ma Huiling, principal of the school, said that the popularity of football culture required more effort and Gaoxin No 6 school will continue to promote football knowledge and skills to help more children enjoy the sport.
