New German goalkeeping sensation is... a seven-year-old kid
Germany’s depth in the goalkeepers’ department is the envy of every footballing nation, what with the likes of Manuel Neuer, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Ron-Robert Zieler at their disposal.
There’s a new prodigy on the horizon, although it may take a while for the world to see him in professional action.
Meet Billy Bob Bracher, the seven-year-old who is now an online sensation after videos of him in action were posted online.
It is clear he has all the right ingredients even at a very young age – athleticism, bravery and good reading.
One YouTube video, titled “Seven Year Old Goalkeeper Bobby - Amazing Saves Season 2014/2015”, has attracted almost five million views.
He is expected to join the academy of German second-tier side 1860 Munich next season.
