Brazilian Boy with No Feet Invited to Train with FC Barcelona

Gabriel Muniz, an 11-year-old Brazilian boy born without feet, has earned an invitation from FC Barcelona after impressing at the club’s summer camp in Rio de Janeiro.

Gabriel’s mother Sandra Muniz says her son has always lived a normal life despite his physical limitations.

“He started walking before he was one. We would go after him, expecting him to keep falling, but he never fell,” she said.

Last year he received a donated foot-ankle prosthesis, but he discards them to play football, often against boys twice his size.
