A child whose dream is to play football with Cristiano Ronaldo

Ali Turganbekov was born without legs but that has not prevented him from developing his passion for football as he continues to remain physically active.

And the 12 year-old boy from Nur Sultan in Kazakhstan could not contain his excitement when he got the chance to knock the ball around with his idol in Dubai. 

Ali has 158,000 followers on Instagram where he has been photographed alongside other greats of the game such as former Barcelona star Xavi and Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas.
