Rivaldo and his son score in same Brazilian league game (Video)

It’s rare that a footballer gets to take to the field alongside his son, let alone score in the same match, but Rivaldo is no ordinary footballer.

The 43-year-old found the net for Mogi Mirim in the Brazilian second tier, as did his 20-year-old son Rivaldinho.

It seems as though the pair are trying to give Henrik Larsson and his son Jordan a run for their money.

We imagine even their kickabouts in the back garden would have been worth watching.

Rivaldo, who played for Brazil at the 1998 and 2002 World Cups, has come out of retirement to represent the club of which he is also president.
