One of the best videos to emerge from Copa Sudamericana didn’t happen on the pitch, it occurred next to it. Journalist Gabriel Carneiro happened to be filming some kids playing a pickup game when he captured something awesome.

Kids can often be so cruel when they’re young, especially to anyone differently abled — but this video of a group playing with a boy who’d lost his leg is sweet enough on its own.
Then he gets the ball, and the video transcends. The boy dribbles the ball effortlessly, fakes out the defender who completely loses the ball, and delivers the best shot that nutmegs the hapless keeper and is met with cheers.
Such an awesome moment. This kid is the best.
that kid is very well known in racing club mainly because of this photo pic.twitter.com/H82c4d8i5I
