Cristiano Ronaldo And Nemanja Matic's Sons Recreate Goal Vs Chelsea In Wonderful Clip

Cristiano Ronaldo and Nemanja Matic's sons have perfectly recreated the goal their dads combined for against Chelsea on Thursday night.

Ronaldo scored his 17th goal of the season in the 1-1 draw, immediately cancelling out Marcos Alonso's lovely strike to put Chelsea 1-0 up on the hour mark.


Matic put through a deliciously scooped pass to Ronaldo, who controlled it with an exquisite touch and then fired a stunning finish past Edouard Mendy to level matters.

On Friday evening, the pair's sons, who are close pals, decided to see if they could imitate the brilliant passage of play.

This time it was FilIp Matic chipping the ball over an adult coach's head for Cristiano Ronaldo Jr to latch onto.

The 11-year-old touched the ball down superbly and tucked the ball away in the empty net. The youngsters, who both play for United's academy, celebrated together and could be heard copying Ronaldo's 'SIUUUUU' cry.

The video has gone viral on social media and fans absolutely loved seeing the heartwarming scenes.

Ronaldo and Matic's sons also play in the same set-up as Wayne Rooney's eldest lad Kai, who scored a gem of a goal with his left foot against Manchester City recently.

Ronaldo took a picture and also gave Filip his shirt from the game, which he scored in.

Matic has already announced he will be leaving United at the end of his fifth season at Old Trafford, with a final three games to play.

“For me it has been a pleasure and an honour to play at Old Trafford for five years and I will do my best to help my team," Matic said in a post-match interview with Sky Sports on Thursday.

"I’ll just repeat, it’s been a pleasure. Three more games to play and United will stay forever in my heart, together with Chelsea."
