Samuel Eche was just ten years old at the time of the report, and his fantastic football skills, aside from his exceptional jogging abilities, make him a 'talk of the town' everywhere he goes.

In a BBC Africa coverage, Samuel told the reporters that his dream is to play for the Super Eagles.

He has dedicated his Instagram page of over 14k followers to the promotion of his incredible talent, and some of his posts show that he's a loyal fan of Messi.
