Ronaldo’s growing lad has certainly inherited some of the goal-scoring attributes to match the name he owns, and is catching the attention.
Cristiano Jr appears to be surprising everyone in Turin. If his father has been a key addition to adding another Scudetto to the senior side’s trophy cabinet with his goals, then his kid is certainly not disappointing in the Bianconero under-9s.
Cristiano: like father, like son
At just eight years old, junior is one of the best forwards in Italy’s younger categories. In Vinovo, which is home to the Juve training ground, he has shown his talent for goal-getting, much like his father. In 35 games he has scored an incredible 56 goals as well as providing a further 26 assists for his teammates.
Despite his tender age, these figures have him standing out amongst his peer group and see him catching the eye of not only Juventus but others around Europe. The spotlight was focused even more on the youngster as he shone for his team in April at the Torneo Internacional de Marítimo. Seven goals by the half-time whistle in one game would have certainly made the ‘old man’ proud.
