European giants Holland have capped Dutch-born massively talented Ghanaian midfielder Emmanuel Andrew Boateng at U16 level and are playing to cap him at senior level despite his tender age. 

The 15-year-old who plays for AZ Alkmaar in the Dutch Junior league is earning raving reviews for his gifted abilities on the ball and the Dutch are wasting no time in exploiting his talent.

Boateng, though a central midfielder, can shift roles and play in different positions across the middle and sometimes play offensively.

Dutch U17 training has been keen following the development of the precocious kid and might send the message of the little man's talent which has been likened to Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba to senior team coach Guus Hiddink.

On Sunday night, Boateng scored a sensational finish for AZ Alkmaar U16 which helped them to a 4-3 win over Feyenoord.
