FC Barcelona youth academy player scores on bicycle kick [Video]

January 25, 2013|By Dan Loumena

You have to check out this incredible bicycle kick goal by 9-year-old Iker Merino of FC Barcelona's youth academy.

That's right. They start teaching them highlight-reel moves at a young age in Europe.

Or maybe the youngsters across the Atlantic Ocean just emulate their favorite players at a young age.

Merino not only scores with a bicycle kick, but he first controls the ball by fighting for position in the penalty box before juggling the ball on his foot to set up for the shot.

The video above, which shows the top 10 goals this week for youth academy players, speaks for the talent of Merino.

FC Barcelona called it the goal of the week for all levels of players in their academy.
