According to Eche, he started freestyling since he was eight years old when his father showed him clips from retired Nigerian skipper, Jay Jay Okocha, Brazillian Gaucho Ronaldinho and Barcelona footballer, Lionel Messi.
“My dad showed me videos of Messi, Ronaldinho and Okocha and I started practising,” Eche said.
The eleven-year-old boy hopes to play for the Nigerian Super Eagles and Clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Chelsea someday.
