Arsenal youth player Trae Coyle recreates Lionel Messi penalty pass

Friday February 19th, 2016

Arsenal youth player Trae Coyle took a page from the book of Lionel Messi when he passed his penalty shot to a teammate during a U16 game.

Messi successfully pulled off the move this past Sunday during a 6–1 victory over Celta Vigo. The trick worked for 15-year-old Coyle was well, resulting in a goal for his team.

This is not the first time that Coyle has been in the spotlight. Last year, he scored against Barcelona from the halfway line right from kick-off.

Watch: Messi scores 300th La Liga goal, then Barcelona’s 10,000th
