Video: Mini Messi (10) runs riot around The Square Tallaght


Ciaran Duffy put his skills to the test when he took on three Shamrock Rovers stars at a Dublin shopping centre.

The talented 10-year-old has become an online hit for his freestyling skills after featuring in an ad for McDonalds for the World Cup in Brazil and has shown that he looks to have a bright future in the game.

Ciaran, who plays for the Shamrock Rovers under-11s, took on senior stars Gary McCabe, Simon Madden & Conor Kenna at The Square Tallaght, where he relied on his skills to evade the clutches of the Hoops trio.

The young student from Scoil Crónáin in Rathcoole is already a member of the Manchester United Academy, centre of excellence.
