The saying ‘like father, like son’ has never proved apter than in the case of Cristiano Ronaldo and Cristiano Ronald Jr.

The 7-year-old has already shown that he has some of his father’s genes with his football skills and freekick skills which are reminiscent of his father’s.

He took it a step further as he reproduced his father’s overhead kick which he used to score against Juventus in the Champions League last week.

Cristiano Ronaldo Jr produced the shot at the end of the Madrid derby, Lucas Vasquez crossed the ball and Ronaldo Jr produced a stunning overhead kick to place into the empty net.

The game between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid ended in a stalemate with Ronaldo scoring for Madrid but Antoine Griezmann equalizing for Atletico.


Not only is Ronnie Jr super skillful, he’s also a carbon copy of his dad when it comes to taking freekicks.

Fans have been quick to compare his flying overhead effort with the one produced just days before by dad, which was ranked as of the greatest ever Champions League goals.

Spanish news outlet Marca asked English readers to vote and Ronaldo bagged 51 per cent of the poll.

Like father, like son indeed
