Sporting Lisbon youngster scores Lionel Messi-esque goal in U13 match

Isnaba Mané scored a remarkable, individual goal for Sporting Lisbon’s prestigious academy side in an International Children’s Soccer tournament held in Pontinha.

The well-built youngster picked the ball up outside the box, but instead of deciding to shoot, he went on a mazy run that the likes of Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona would be proud of.

Showing great balance for a player in an under-13 side, Mané went on to leave five opposition players in knots before unleashing a fierce shot with his left foot into the bottom-right corner.

Isnaba Mané. Remember the name.
