Cristiano Ronaldo has scored a fair few beauties in his career, but did he ever score a perfect bicycle kick aged five?
If he hasn’t, he ought to be worried – as his son, Cristiano Jr (seriously, what else would he be called?), just nailed one in his garden.
Jr. rises perfectly to meet what is presumably a set up from Ronaldo Sr, sending the ball flying into the bottom corner of a miniature goal in his garden (which has better grass than a few Premier League grounds).
Check it out:
Ronaldo can be heard cheering his son’s effort, which is probably the only time Cristiano has been happy when someone other than himself has found the net.
It’s clear to see talent obviously runs in the Ronaldo family, which is to be expected with the 31-year-old being one of the best to ever lace up a pair of boots.
With Portugal currently struggling in the Euros, we can think of worse options than calling up Cristiano Jr, who would be a damn sight more effective than some of Ronaldo’s current international team mates…
