Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported how some talented kids displayed great football skill without allowing the ball to the touch ground.
A video shared on LinkedIn has shown just how fun childhood is as some kids displayed a coordinated football skill.
In the very short clip posted by Stephen Angbulu, some young boys passed a football to each other using only their heads.
What amazed most people was that the ball never had any contact with the floor.
In about 20 seconds, and after the ball had touched about six heads, the kid close to a plastic bucket used as a goal post creatively 'netted' the ball.
Theirs brought to memory the popular Shaolin Soccer movie.
