9-Year-Old Scores Awesome Solo Goal


When we were 9, we considered it an enormous triumph if we could do more than three keepy-uppies without shinning the ball into the neighbour's garden.

But, clearly, things have moved on a bit, and today's youth are capable of much greater skill - as evidenced by this ridiculous goal by a 9-year-old for German side FC Koln's youth team against their opposite numbers from Bayer Leverkusen.

After receiving the ball, the youngster goes on to perform two Zidane-style dragbacks, before tucking the ball away in the far corner.

The new Maradona, or the new Cherno Samba? Time will but tell. In the meantime, marvel at this awesome piece of skill below.
