Arsenal to face three solid European teams in NextGen series group stages

At right is Serge Gnabry. Thomas lurves him.

Arsenal have learned that they will be in Group Four of the NextGen Series for 2012-13, facing off against U19 squads RSC Anderlecht of Belgium, Olympique Marseille of France, and Athletic Bilbao of Spain, according to the official club site. The NextGen series features any player born on or after January 1, 1994, plus three exceptions, culminating in a final in March 2013. Hopefully this series will give us more opportunities to see the likes of Jon Toral, Martin Angha, Kyle Ebicilio, and Serge Gnabry.

Inter Milan's squad won the cup last year against Ajax on penalties, and this year's lineup of teams looks to be even stronger, with Arsenal and Chelsea joining up. The series is basically a youth Champions League, with youth squads from Norwegian champions Molde facing off against clubs such as Fenerbahce, Celtic, Manchester City, Juventus, PSV, Tottenham, and Borussia Dortmund. Check out everything you need to know at the series' official site.
