Meet Xuxuh - The 12 Year Old Set For Global Domination

American youngster John Kenneth Hilton - nicknamed Xuxu (pronounced shu-shu) - recently dominated a youth tournament while on trial at Manchester City.


Xuxuh, who has just turned 12, is a product of the Chivas USA Academy and was recently called up to the USA U14 National Team Camp by manager Hugo Perez. He is by far the youngest player to make the squad.

Some of his incredible talent may be explained by the fact that while his father Kenneth is American, his mother Dina Conceicao, is Brazilian. To give you an idea of the magic he possesses in his feet, when he was just ten, Xuxuh won an Xbox after making a bet that he could juggle a ball for half an hour without it bouncing. He managed to keep the ball up with 2,845 consecutive touches. He has already inspired his team to winning three State Championships and a National Championship.

Check out the videos below to gauge how good this kid is. Most of the clips are against other California based teams but it does contain footage of a game against FC Barcelona's brilliant La Masia side.
