Video: Barcelona U12 ace scores a brilliant Bergkamp-esque goal

Dennis Bergkamp Skill

Is this lad going to be Messi 2.0? We're not sure, but we do know this goal was amazing!

Remember Dennis Bergkamp's absolute stunner for Arsenal against Newcastle United at St James' Park back in the 2001/2002 season? Wasn't it just utterly brilliant? Isn't it one of your favourite goals of all time and aren't you still a little bit confused as to how he managed to do it?

Well, we reckon this lad has absolutely nailed the technique and how to spin defenders like a dreidel on Hanukkah! Let us introduce you to 11-year-old Sergi Oriol, who plays for Barcelona's under-12 side. The youngster, who is lucky enough to play for the same academy that helped introduce Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta to the world, has managed to get himself hyped up as the next big thing all thanks to this brilliant goal.

Wow! Now, here is the most shocking part, he was actually playing for the U12's B team! His goal helped the side emerge 3-0 victors against Sant Cugat.

Now, what are the odds on us hearing about Sergi in a few years time? Well, if he keeps scoring goals like this, we reckon it won't be long before he's brushing shoulders with señor Messi.
