Another little footballing curio for you here in the shape of an archive interview with a young Erik Lamela, long before he was the shaven and shorn, rabona-pinging goddess you see afore ye.
It was Trans World Sport that caught up with Lamela as a prodigious, ponytailed 12-year-old knocking about on the streets of Buenos Aires.
Lamela sits down to natter about signing for River Plate, being pursued by Barcelona, and about his idol Diego Maradona – all the while looking every inch the young Claudio Caniggia…
Aww, diddums – and who knew Lamela’s dad was John Denver?
You really do learning something new every day in this game.
