HONG KONG, CHINA (NBC) - A 12-year-old Brazilian boy born with no feet showed off his soccer skills at a mall in Hong Kong Friday.
Gabriel Muniz is the star player on his school's soccer team and the captain of his gym class.
He shot to fame in his native Brazil after appearing on a popular sports program.
After he was initially offered a place at Barcelona FC's training academy in Rio de Janeiro, the club's managers invited him to the team's summer camp in Spain in 2012.
Muniz says he wants to be a professional soccer player when he gets older.
He appeared at the event in Hong Kong Friday as his home country prepared to host the 2014 World Cup.
