12-year-old dubbed the 'Indian Messi' shows off his extraordinary football skills

Balkar Singh is the 12-year-old boy who lives in a small village in Haryana, northern India who is being dubbed as the "Indian Messi".

The 12-year-old idolizes Argentinan footballer Lionel Messi and aspires to represent India at an international stage.

Filmed on August 2, Balkar is seen demonstrating his footballing ability by juggling the ball while walking along a thin brick wall.

Football is dearly-loved by Indian people, but the country has not made it big at the international stage. The nation is currently ranked 101 in the FIFA world rankings.
