Theo Walcott Posts Throwback Photo with Gareth Bale from Their Southampton Days

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.
