But there’s a catch: the youngster in the video isn’t Mateo Messi. To begin with, Leo Messi has already stated that all of his boys are right-footed, ruling out Mateo.
Ezequiel Llach, who formerly played for Real Zaragoza’s academy, is said to be the architect of the spectacular goal, according to Argentinian publication La Opinion Austral and various Twitter accounts. The video was made in 2012.
Ezequiel appears to have corroborated this. Regrettably, he was never able to make the transition to professional football.
