Young Irish goalkeeper Nathan is the story we need

A young Irish goalkeeper has gone viral after he was filmed practicing his shot-stopping in a unique way.

11-year-old Nathan Fanagan was putting in a few extra hours of training while the football season is on a break and schools are shut.

However, footage captured by his mum Sarah-Jayne Tobin went further than she, or he, could have imagined.

He uses his wall to rebound his own shots so he can save them - genius!

The video quickly went viral as it was picked up by Man United legend Peter Schmeichel, as well as current 'keeper David De Gea.

Training offers

However it wasn't the only praise to come Nathan's way, as he was also offered a session with Man United midfielder Juan Mata.

In addition, and probably Nathan's biggest offer to date, he was offered a one-on-one training session with Watford 'keeper Ben Foster.

Nathan, a Leeds United fan, has been inundated with messages of support and kudos for his ingenious method of keeping himself sharp.
