Real Madrid and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been ruling the world of football for years. Arguably the greatest footballer of his generation along side Argentina and FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi, Ronaldo has delighted his fans from across the world with his magical feet.

It seems the Real Madrid star’s son, Cristianinho Ronaldo, has inherited the same ability to weave magic with a football at his feet. A recent Instagram video posted by Cristiano Ronaldo of his seven-year-old son netting a splendid goal in a local match has left football fans in awe of the little boy’s talent.

The video shows Cristianinho, also clad in jersey No. 7, dribble past a defender with élan before beating the goalkeeper with an outstanding kick. The goal appears straight out of senior Ronaldo’s book. The video has so far received nearly 10 million views and 23 thousand comments.
