Samuel Inkoom Jnr.'s artistry and vision on the ball provides an eye-catching delight and sets him straight up for battle for a place among the pantheon of greats.

At an unbelievable age of 3, the kid's ball controlling abilities and flair in display of skills comparable to Barcelona's Lionel Messi - whose shirt he proudly wears on his morning artistic rehearsal, are enough evidence of his natural talent.

Perhaps too young to enroll in any of Europe's elite academies and unfavoured by the professionals schedules of his, the little man turns his mother into a trainer every morning at home.

Real machismo at morning training

His father's feat has been excelling at FC Basel where he played in the lucrative Uefa Champions League and looking set to appear in a second World Cup finals with Ghana but the youngster could go far and surpass his father's feat with the right nurturing of his evident talent.

    Lol,Massa,what does that mean? Does it mean he cannot be good as his father? Or 'a crab' in this case 'a footballer' will always give birth to a 'footballer' and not a 'bird' lets say 'a boxer'? Oh well,just a little pun. Anyway, would love to see some videos,if he is that good,Inkoom should really nurture him.There are lots top class talents in Ghana,if only we can find an avenue of nurturing these talents,not even Brazil will be a match,such a shame how much talents go to waste.

Pussy benji if u don't have Dstv at home u better have one so u could watch his performance infact inkoom is a big time floop who doesn't fit to be in black stars currently. Ghanaians hates the truth that why the country is always in the hands of thieves and wrong peoples

    wow! this guy can make the squad to Brazil 2014. Kwesi Appia should give him a call up and leave inkoom because he is more serious than his father.
