Bolivia has a 12-year-old phenom

He turns 13 tomorrow.

His dad -- a former Bolivian national team star -- is his coach.

He played for nine minutes in his first division debut last weekend.

He got tackled really hard and cried. His dad/coach was not happy, "calling the defender a criminal and slamming the referee for not booking him."

Next up: puberty? 8th grade tea? a bowl of Lucky Charms?
