Cristiano Ronaldo’s son might be better than him at free-kicks

Great goal...


Cristiano Ronaldo’s son appears to have inherited his father’s football skills.

It’s not always the case that the son of a great footballer becomes a great player, and there’s no guarantee that Cristiano Jr. will, but he looks to be off to a good start.

Ronaldo posted a video on his official Instagram page showing his six-year-old son hitting an impressive free-kick.

Cristiano Jr. even mimics his father’s famous free-kick stance.

However, unlike the Real Madrid star, Cristiano Jr actually scores.

That’s probably a little unfair on Ronaldo, who has scored three of his 19 free-kicks this season, including this stunner against Celta Vigo.

That’s a better return than his three goals from 40 attempts last season, but doesn’t have a patch on Ronaldo Jr. ‘s 100% record from free-kicks.
