Cristiano Ronaldo Jr Scores A Ridiculous Solo Goal For Juventus Under 9's

Cristiano Ronaldo has just scored a goal for Juventus' youth team that his dad would be very proud of.

When the five-time Ballon d'Or winner made the switch from Madrid to Turin, so too did his eight-year old son - who now plies his trade with the Bianconeri Under 9's.

He made an emphatic start, scoring four goals on his debut in a 7-1 victory over Lucento and in the same month he bagged a brilliant curling strike in a game.

The youngster was sporting the No.11 shirt on that occasion but wore his father's No.7 shirt with distinction in his most recent game, where he might just have scored his best goal yet.

Fed down the right flank, Cristiano destroyed the defender by chopping back inside like his dad, before ruining the goalkeeper and slotting home with his left-foot.

All his teammates are shouting "Cris!" to try and get him to pass but he's not having any of it and scores a sublime solo goal anyway. Like father, like son.

The big question is can he surpass his old man? Well, the little lad is confident he can but Ronaldo isn't so sure himself.

"I hope that Cris, my son, can be like his dad," he told beIN SPORTS (via the Daily Mirror) last month.

"He says he is going to be better [than me], but I think it's difficult.

"I am very happy to have scored, for him too. He is playing for Juventus and adapting really well - it has been easier for him than for me."
