Thrissur: A 4-year-old is grabbing attention with his ability to recall the names of over 100 football players with ease. Just by looking at the pictures of football players, Raadin Raneesh could easily identify the player and can even tell their jersey number. From Robert Lewandowski to Lionel Messi, the list of players he had named goes on.
Hailing from Venginissery in Thrissur, Raadin is son of Raneesh and Shabna. He studies in UKG at Gurukulam Public School in Venginissery. "We are a family that loves football. From childhood, he has been watching us getting involved in the game," his father Raneesh told mathrubhumi.com.
Raneesh, a fan of Belgium, still remembers how his son emotionally reacted to Belgium vs Denmark game in Euro 2020. "Disappointed by the first half, he started to closely watch the game in the second half. His interest in football peaked after this game. Soon, we started to watch every game just for him," he added.
Raadin's favorite football player is Cristiano Ronaldo and he loves Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne as well. He occasionally plays football at his home and eagerly learns new things associated with the game.
Apart from football, this child prodigy can also identify more than 120 different cars, countries, and so forth. His dream is to travel to Qatar and attend the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
