The Next Lionel Messi Is Japanese… And 9-Years-Old

That’s right, folks. The heir apparent to Argentine and FC Barcelona great Lionel Messi is none other than a 9-year-old boy from Japan. As of yet, the kid’s identity hasn’t been released, but the above video has surfaced. We gotta tell you. We’re not the kind to be easily impressed by wunderkinds, but holy crap, this kid is legit good. Sure, he’s playing against other children his own age, but the way our nameless future soccer star controls the ball– his footwork– isn’t talent. It’s a god-given gift that very few are ever blessed with.
