Celtic youngster Rocco Vata, son of former Celtic star Rudi Vata is quickly making a name for himself for both club and country.
The Hoops starlet was playing for the under 17s this weekend and created a bit of magic.
Unreal strike from Rocco Vata for Ireland u17s tonight ?? https://t.co/EJ8tCu0kRU— Lewis Laird (@LewisLaird01) October 10, 2021
What a hit from the youngster.
Rocco is contracted to Celtic until 2024 at the moment but you can bet that will be extended if he continues to do things like that.
The midfielder is only 15 and is already showing outstanding promise.
Ireland under 17s beat North Macedonia 2-0 in the end and Rocco got them on their way.
The player’s dad is Albanian, while his mother is Scottish but has opted to use the grandparent rule to play his football for Ireland at this point. You can still change allegiance until your first official cap.
It’s great to see the wee man doing so well. He’s been brilliant down the right hand side for the Celtic B team.
