Necessity is the mother of invention, and one young Dublin lad has certainly come up with an inventive way of playing football!

The coronavirus lockdown has meant that chances for lads to get out and play have been few and far-between.

Newstalk's own Sarah-Jayne Tobin posted a video of her son coming up with a new way to practice his goalkeeping skills!

With that kind of work ethic, it is only a matter of time before Marcelo Bielsa is on the phone..!

The video has become a viral sensation, with Manchester United goalkeeping royalty sharing their thoughts on the action, including the Great Dane, Peter Schmeichel.

The current number one at Old Trafford also had his say, with David de Gea tweeting the following:

More at United have become involved, with de Gea's compatriot Juan Mata going one step further than his teammates by making a very special offer to the star of the show.

A lovely gesture indeed.

However, if the young goalkeeper would prefer a more direct training session then he may very well take up Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster's offer.
