Daddy did not score on the night but the son made sure to get his kicks right.
The fusion between dad Cristiano Ronaldo and his son is adorable, to say the least. After putting in 74 minutes in which he provided an assist to goalscorer Bruno Fernandes, the reigning Best FIFA Men’s Player stayed on the sidelines to witness Portugal wrapping up their 3-0 victory over Algeria.
It was the last of three World Cup warm-ups. At the final whistle, the 22 players on the field soon disappeared, making way for Cristiano and his son to steal the spotlight in front of girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez who was watching from the stands.

The footage shows Ronaldo execute a gesture with his head to give his eldest son the green light. The kid, wearing a green Portugal shirt, then knocks one in from the edge of the D.
Beaming, CR7 then rolls the ball and places it on the penalty spot for his miniature to take a spot-kick. Junior impressively curls one in into the top-right corner of the net to beat his goalkeeper.
Watch the footage posted on the official account of the Seleccao:
O apito final não quer dizer que acabe o espectáculo. Cristiano Ronaldo e Cristianinho: tal pai, tal filho.#ConquistaOSonho
