You have seen Cristiano Ronaldo score time after time. First for Manchester United, then Real Madrid and national team Portugal. He is like a Swiss clock, expected to score in each outing and he almost always delivers. And yes, a lot of these goals have been spectacular. He manages to score from impossible positions that are almost equal to miracles. Yes, Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi has bested him many times, but at the moment, Ronaldo’s star is on the ascemdant – after all, he has just powered Real Madrid to the La Liga title and also to rewritting history with the team winning back-to-back Champions League titles. That has not happened – ever.
But, enough of Ronaldo! There is a rising star who may well obliterate his records. The initial evidence is there. In fact, it’s all in the DNA! How? Well, let’s just say, child is the father of man, to quote William Wordsworth. Confused, well, let’s just cut to the chase, so to speak. We are talking about none other than Ronaldo’s own son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr who has started his career in a spectacular fashion with a goal that is an actual miracle, no less!
It was on the same night that Real Madrid Played Juventus to win the Champions Trophy on Saturday. Ronaldo Jr was seen playing on the pitch after the final was over and clearly Ronaldo Jr showed that he was special in every way – perhaps better at the game than his own father when the superstar was his age. And this praise was not coming from his father either, it was coming from the gathered fans at the stadium who watched Junior make some amazing plays.
And best of all, it was captured on video, which has now gone viral. Junior donned Real Madrid’s jersey (the away one – purple) and he took to the field with three others dressed in white. They try to relieve him of the ball. They fail. And then in a few moments of magic, he just dribbles through them and scores – a fantastic goal!
So, will the real Ronaldo please stand up?
