Amazing football skills of Juan Pablo Angel’s son

World of Sport

Juan Pablo Angel was a cult hero for Aston Villa fans not so long ago, and was the last player at the club to score over 20 goals in a season back in 2003/04.

Now his son Tomy is starting make a name for himself despite only being eight years old.

The Angel family are now based Los Angeles where Juan Pablo is a team-mate of David Beckham's at the LA Galaxy and his son has been tearing up the youth leagues over in the States with his amazing skills.

The son of the former Colombian international seems to have it all - close control, silky skills and an eye for goal.

A compilation of some of Tomy's play emerged this month showing off his talents and was made viral by fans of another of Angel's former clubs, River Plate, with supporters of the recently relegated Argentine giants wanting their side to sign up the young Angel.

It all brings to mind the buzz about the 'Japanese Messi' from earlier in the year but could the young Angel be even better?

Watch the video and leave your thoughts as to whether you think Tomy Angel has a chance to make it big.
