Famous footballer Cristiano Ronaldo's son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, scored his second goal for the Manchester United U-12 team as they defeated Girones Sabat 5-0, playing in a youth tournament in Spain.

The 11-year-old began the game on the bench and came in in the second half when United was already leading in the match. Ronaldo Jr. seized onto a low driven cross and put the ball into the nets from close range in the 68th minute of the game. He then replicated his father's legendary 'Siuuu' celebration.

Here is the celebration video

"My son says to me 'Dad, hang in there for a few more years, I want to play with you'," revealed Cristiano Ronaldo when his son joined Manchester United's youth academy.

"We’ll see if my son will become a great footballer, he has potential. He is fast and dribbles well, but that is not enough. I always tell him that it takes work and dedication to have success. I won’t pressure him to become a footballer, but if you ask me if I want him to, yes I would like it. The most important thing is to become the best at whatever he does, whether it is as a footballer or a doctor," he added.

Ronaldo Jr, who came through United's youth academy, scored his first goal for the club only a few days ago against West Bromwich Albion.

Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, re-joined Manchester United last summer after leaving the club in the summer of 2009 to join Real Madrid for a then-record cost of £80 million. Ronaldo won four Champions League wins and two La Liga crowns during his nine seasons with Madrid.

Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d'Or winner, then joined Juventus in the summer of 2018, where he spent three seasons, winning Serie A championships in his first two seasons. So far this season, the 37-year-old has scored 18 goals for United in all competitions. United, on the other hand, hasn't been at their best this season.  They are placed seventh in the points table, six points behind Tottenham Hotspur, having already lost the Champions League and both domestic cups.
