Sevilla's Giant Striker Ibrahima Sow Is Only 12-Years-Old And He's An Absolute Baller

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Senegalese striker Ibrahima Sow, the incredibly talented 12-year-old making waves in the youth system at La Liga side Sevilla.

If you didn't catch our story last week, the youngster went viral after a picture of him emerged tackling a Villarreal player in an under 12 game.

But there's far more to his game than just height.

Sow has scored a remarkable 29 goals in all competitions this season, standing out from the rest for a number of different reasons.

The youngster uses his pace and power to dominate opponents, and his hold up play is second to none.

His lightning quick feet also helps the Sevilla U12 captain in tricky situations.

I mean, just check out this goal he scored against Real Betis earlier this month. He's got it all.

Nicknamed "Ibra" according to Spanish publication Marca, the striker joined Sevilla from Malaga in 2018.

He has since dominated in the majority of games and as a result, the club are convinced that Sow will make the grade in the coming years as he continues to make a name for himself in La Liga's Promises Santander tournament.

Sevilla went on to describe him as "undoubtedly one of the shining stars of the tournament so far" on their official website.

We can't disagree with that statement.

Here are just a few snaps of the 12-year-old in action:

Remember the name, Ibrahima Sow.
