Cristiano Ronaldo juggling with a football is business as usual. However, Ronaldo and a teenage boy going head-to-head to see who is the better juggler makes for captivating viewing.

The unknown boy shows plenty of ball control as the pair pass the ball between them. They start off innocuously enough, as Ronaldo heads the ball a few times but the tricks soon get complicated as the teenager shows off his range of skills. There is a behind-the-back overhead flick to start, which Ronaldo catches between his knees but the young boy soon goes around the world, first with his left foot and then later with his right, almost daring Ronaldo to match him.

Ronaldo appears to be both impressed and amused by the boy's talents and shows off his own around-the-world move, but the teenager is the star. The photographers on the pitch can't believe their good fortune at this exchange either and if you can tear your eyes away from the football, can be seen clicking away furiously.

It's a slightly old video but it still makes a fun watch.
