I had a previous article on CR7 Junior’s skills…here is another example of how the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Ronaldo Senior shared a video clip on Instagram (this seems to be the app of the newsletter today) of his seven-year-old son scoring a brilliantly-struck free-kick from distance in a youth game in Spain.
The Real Madrid player praised his son and hinted that the set-piece skill has come from plenty of practice at home, with the caption saying, “Nothing is coincidence”.
Picture this…young CR7 standing over the free-kick with his body straight and his legs shoulder-width apart…hmmmm…who else does this ??
There is a three-man wall with two players positioned on each post on the goal line, with the ball placed a fair distance from the goal.
Junior takes a run-up, pings the ball with a swerve, and dip where the ball perfectly arches over the wall and lands in the bottom corner, giving the keeper no chance at a save.
What is surprising to me was the lack of celebration from young Ronaldo! He simply walks back to his team’s half.
“Check me out Dad…I do this all the time.” Lol…impressive!
