That’s a better bicycle kick than his father has scored in his entire career! Messi scores some amazing goals, but bicycle kicks aren’t his specialty.
Mateo has mastered the skill move at just eight years old. The Argentine youngster has a long way to go, but some of his highlights look like his father’s moves.
