    Wow! So few 11 year-olds have that kind of skill and practically none of them have the vision this kid shows, both avoiding defenders and finding teammates. Just WOW!

    This kid resembles Giuseppe Rossi at that age level...luckily, he'll be going to hone his skills.

    I don't see anything special there. I understand he is only 11 year old. But he only has a couple of simple moves which he uses again and again. Many kids can do those and a lot more. I don't know what the big deal is

    See this news, I think Real Madrid coach <a href="http://www.sellfootballshirt.com/">Carlo Ancelotti</a>, he would like to borrow the young footballer. I think this is very good, young people represent the hope and vitality.
