Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, the son of Manchester United and Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo, scored his second goal for Manchester United’s U-12 side when they defeated Girones Sabat 5-0 in a youth tournament in Spain. The 11-year-old started the game on the bench and came into the second half, when United were already on a crusade in the game. In the 68th minute of the game, Ronaldo Jr took a low, driven cross and shot the ball in from close range. He then pulled out his father’s iconic “Siuuu” party.

Ronaldo Jr, who had joined United, had scored his first goal for the club against West Bromwich Albion two weeks ago.
Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, had rejoined Manchester United last summer, having left the club in the summer of 2009 to sign with Real Madrid for a then-record £80million fee.
During his nine seasons in Madrid, Ronaldo won four Champions League and two La Liga titles, among others.
Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or, then joined Italy’s Juventus in the summer of 2018 and spent three seasons in Turin, winning Serie A titles in his first two seasons.
The 37-year-old has scored 18 goals for United in all competitions so far and will aim to score a few more before the end of the season.
United have not been at their best this season, however.
United have already lost to the Champions League and the two domestic cups and are seventh in the points list, six behind fourth-seeded Tottenham Hotspur.
