Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo may not be at his prolific best this season, but his son—Cristiano Ronaldo Junior—continues to impress for the Bianconeri’s academy sides and looks set to follow in his father’s footsteps of becoming a professional footballer.
Since signing for the Old Lady in the summer, Ronaldo has found the back of the net four times, with all his goals coming in the the Serie A.
However, the 33-year-old’s Portuguese’s son has been doing him proud while playing for the youth sides and here’s a video of ‘CR7 Junior’ ripping it up:

Beating his marker with a Cruyff turn on the wing, Cristiano Junior approaches the keeper and calmly rounds him before toe-poking into an empty net.

The second goal’s finish is equally impressive, with the young Portuguese firing a low shot at the far post past the hapless custodian.
Ronaldo Senior hasn’t been able to settle in as well as he would have hoped as the ink on his megabucks deal with Juventus hadn’t dried that a past rape allegation came to the fore.
Kathryn Mayorga, a former model, claimed that Ronaldo raped her in hotel room in Las Vegas in 2009.
The reigning Ballon d’Or holder has strenuously denied all allegations and continued to maintain his innocence.
Currently, he’s skipped the recent round of international fixtures for Portugal as he wished to focus on his club career and it’s possible he won’t represent his country till next year.
At 33, the athletic forward has plenty of football left in him and it is unlikely he will retire from the national team before the 2020 Euros, where the Iberian nation will be the defending champions.
