A 2-year-old Nigerian child Obinna Uzokwe has been tipped by his father Iyke to become Nigeria's Lionel Messi in the future.
His father must have noticed and seen great football qualities in his son for him to have compared Obinna with the Argentine and Barcelona legend.
In some photos made available to Legit.ng by Iyke Uzokwe, young Obinna was seen wearing the Super Eagles jersey and showing some skills on the pitch.
Obinna, 2, born by a Nigerian father who hails from Nnewi and lives in Belfast which is the capital of Northern Ireland. His mother is a British.

Meanwhile, Barcelona legend Lionel Messi also began his football career at a younger age before growing up to become one of the best football superstars in the world.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Argentina FA made it clear that they will not give any player the No 10 jersey in their hopes of convincing Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi to make a return to international duty.
Lionel Messi is yet to announce his international retirement but the forward has told the FA that he wants to be excused from playing for the national team for the rest of this year.
