Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. Scored Seven Goals In One Game For Juventus Under 9's

When Cristiano Ronaldo made the switch from Madrid to Turin, so too did his eight-year old son.

Like his five-time Ballon d'Or-winning father, Cristiano Jr has also banged in the goals in Bianconeri colours.

He marked his debut by 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.

Ronaldo's eldest kid has even followed in his footsteps by lifting his first bit of silverware in December.

And most recently he continued his fine form by scoring a ridiculous SEVEN goals in one half back in his dad's birthplace of Madeira, Portugal.

Wearing his dad's iconic No.7 shirt and playing in front of his grandmother, Dolores Aveiro, and his aunt, Cristiano Jr went goal-crazy in a 25-0 win over Maritimo China in the International Maritimo Centenary Tournament.

Not resting on his laurels though, he made it 12 goals in his first two games by bagging a further five in a 15-1 rout over Camacha, as per AS.

As part of the trip, the Juventus youngsters also paid a visit to the infamous Ronaldo bust outside the airport named after him and posed for a picture.

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 Daily Mirror.

"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."

In a separate interview, CR7 revealed his son also thrives under pressure like him.

"Yes, he also plays for Juventus, and feels the pressure and likes it," Ronaldo said.

"Sometimes he asks me: can I bring 2 Italian friends home? I tell him yes, then he says: but you must be here because they want to take a picture (laughs)."
