Cristiano Ronaldo Jr follows in Real Madrid star dad’s footsteps with incredible overhead kick at Bernabeu


Amazing footage shows 7-year-old smashing an overhead kick into top corner after father’s double against Getafe earlier

Amazing footage shows Cristiano Jr, 7, smashing an overhead kick into the top corner at the Bernabeu.

The youngster was staying behind to practise on Saturday night after Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Getafe when he pulled off the acrobatic finish.

Real winger Lucas Vazquez crosses the ball in for Cristiano Jr and Marcelo’s son Enzo, 8, to attack.

But it is the Portuguese who dazzles with the incredible strike.

Enzo looks stunned by the goal and applauds his pal as he runs to gather the ball.

Dad Ronaldo, 33, had just scored two himself against Getafe – though none quite so nice.

But he must be getting used to his son’s ability having watched him score a hat-trick in a match last year.

Ronaldo, perhaps having taken inspiration, from his boy, scored in Tuesday night’s 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain to see Real Madrid progress to the quarter finals.

The Portugal captain netted two in the first leg in Madrid as Real triumphed 5-2 on aggregate.

Cristiano Jr seems intent upon following his dad into football.
