Video: FC Köln under-9 player pulls off two Zidane turns en route to brilliant goal
Take a bow son, take a bow.
With more and more clubs uploading footage of their various academy teams onto YouTube these days, football fans are getting more and more opportunities to see what the next generation are capable of and what the future holds for the club they support.
As you would expect from a school as famous as La Masia, Barcelona youth teams have produced some incredible goals in recent years and they’re not the only ones, as was evident in a recent clash between the under-9 sides of Bayer Leverkusen and FC Köln.
In this case, it was all about the individual ability of one FC Köln player as he beat the Leverkusen defence with two expertly executed 360 degree turns just like the ones made famous by Zinedine Zidane in his pomp, before finishing confidently for a goal he’ll no doubt revisit again and again for years to come.
Unfortunately, we’re not sure of the kid’s name but if we knew, we’d tell you to remember it for the future because this lad could well be going places.
