The next Messi? Barcelona youngster scores EXACT SAME wonder goal twice in 2 minutes (VIDEO)
Spanish footballing giants Barcelona look like they have yet another budding star on their hands from the club’s fabled La Masia Academy which nurtured the likes of Lionel Messi.

Current Barca skipper Messi is perhaps the best-known graduate from the academy, which has raised a stream of first-team players down the years including fellow legends such as Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez and Pep Guardiola.

But Under-12s starlet Genís Torrelles could one day join that list, if one recent performance is anything to go by.

Showing unerring left-footed accuracy of which Messi himself would be proud, Torrelles struck two stunning, identical strikes in the space of two minutes.

Picking the ball up in the center of the pitch, the youngster whips the ball across the ‘keeper and into the far top corner for a golazo – before doing exactly the same thing one minute later.

“This is not a replay,” wrote the main Barca Twitter account when sharing the incredible clip with its nearly 30 million followers.

And social mdia users were left amazed at young Genís' striking skills. 

Messi, eat your heart out.
