Ronaldo Jr, nicknamed Cristianinho, seems to have inherited all of his father’s genes as he unleashed a stunning strike, reports Express UK.
The boy, aged 7, would have undoubtedly spent hours in the garden honing his skills and he produced the goods to the delight of the Portuguese crowd.
It was a strike Ronaldo himself would have been proud of, though it really seemed as if there was ever going to be any other outcome.
Ronaldo had failed where his son succeeded earlier in the night, Goncalo Guedes scoring twice with Bruno Fernandes also netting.

The Real Madrid star had seen an effort ruled out for offside as he played 74 minutes in his first match since the Champions League final.
He is one of the favourites to win the Golden Boot at this summer’s World Cup with Portugal facing Spain, Iran and Morocco in the group stages.
The win over Algeria was Ronaldo’s 150th international appearance and he has scored 81 goals for his country.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner will be hoping to add to that tally in Russia.
