Spanish pundits buzzing around Roma whizkid Cristian Totti

The son of Roma legend Francesco Totti is already catching the eye.

Cristian Totti, 12, is playing for Roma in a youth tournament in Tenerife and quickly earning positive press.

AS reports the attacker plays in a similar fashion to his father and already looks like a future world-beater.

Totti Jr has been played as a striker this week and unlike Dad, is wearing the No9 shirt rather than the coveted No10.

Roma are eager to shield the youngster from the spotlight and so have kept him from the starting line-up for the opening two games of the tournament. However, when Cristian has entered the field, his qualities have quickly shone.
