Ronaldo Jr. Emulates Father’s Goalscoring Heroics For Juve’s Youth Team
Cristiano Ronaldo’s eldest son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. is just eight years old. Yet, he seems to have decided the path he wants to tread in life.
From the precocious manner, he has quickly absorbed all the tricks normally deployed by footballing greats like his father on the field, it is clear he loves the game, and would like to play it, and possibly eclipse the records of his father!
Well, it is a long, long way to go before he can put his father’s rather intimidating records in the shade, but he sure does not lack the talent to achieve it, if what he has been doing lately with the round leather object is anything to go by.
Ronaldo Jr’s latest exploits, where he scored two brilliant goals for Juventus’ Football Club Youth team on Sunday has been creating a buzz on social media especially when it is considered that it was his father, Cristiano who posted it.
The video clips which has been attracting massive viewership on the net, show the eight- year old exhibiting skills, maturity and composure in the execution of his two goals quite beyond his years.
