An 11-Year Old Is Playing Senior Football In Liberia And He's Tearing It Up

An 11-Year Old Is Playing Senior Football In Liberia And He's Tearing It Up

An 11-year-old has been playing senior football over in Liberia.

Eric Marshall plays for FC Gar'ou in the African country's fourth division and has gone viral recently for playing with adults.

In fact, the young lad was demanding the ball all the time and showed some lovely touches in possession.

It's said that Marshall is set to become the youngest player to Liberia Inter High School league but we're hoping he gets drafted into academy to further his development.

The player who holds the record for being the youngest to feature in a professional game is Bolivian Mauricio Baldivieso.
