A 10-yr-old Messi? 7


OK – time to shine the light on another Future Best star-in-waiting. This time it’s 10-year-old Sandor Xavi Bustamante of Lee-Mount Vernon Sports Club in Virginia, USA.

Despite Sandor’s notable middle name, to this BP observer he plays more like one of Xavi’s rivals for the 2010 Ballon d’Or: Lionel Messi. Watch Sandor’s “video bio” and see how he controls the ball, how he protects it with his body, how he unselfishly lays on passes to teammates, and how he dribbles and shoots – and scores – with confidence.

According to the video, Sandor dreams of being a professional soccer player. With skills and dedication like this, we think he’s well on the way.
