The clip is actually from an Instagram account of @k.s.k55, a Japanese citizen who is a father of two kids, who are 12 and 10 years old and are U12 and U10 players of the Hyogo Football Association. The kid, named Nishinomiya, performed the challenge named ‘Messi Challenge’, and was able to do it 31 times!
There are many other videos of the two kids performing amazing skill and juggles with the ball, and even some on-field action.
However, seeing talented kinds on the internet aren’t the only football action the fans would have to resort to anymore. Following more than two months of the suspension amidst the novel Coronavirus pandemic, the beautiful game is slowly returning to action in this month and the next one.
