Theo Walcott and Gareth Bale are two of the most famous products of Southampton's prodigious academy, but it's still a bit weird to imagine them as teammates. 

Now, we don't have to imagine. Walcott posted the above photo to his Instagram account on Friday with the caption, "Me and @garethbale11 teammates at Southampton academy #Flashback Friday."

It may not be the highest-quality photo, but there's no mistaking those young faces. They've certainly come a long way.
