Portugal, Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo beams with pride as son hits top corner

Former Portugal midfielder Deco has insisted that his home country should be considered as one of the favourites to win the World Cup in Russia.

Portugal fans got a glimpse of the talent of Cristiano Ronaldo's son Cristiano Jr. after their country's 3-0 friendly win over Algeria at the Estadio da Luz on Thursday.

The seven-year-old showed he has inherited his father's skills when five-time Ballon d'Or Ronaldo encouraged him to have a shot -- and watched him beat a young goalkeeper with a brilliant right-footed strike into the top corner.

Portugal's Football Federation posted a video on Twitter with the message: "The final whistle doesn't mean the show is over. Cristiano and his son, it's clear the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! #ConquerYourDream."

In April, the Real Madrid star posted a photograph of his mother with Cristiano Jr, who is holding several trophies and wearing a medal, with the message: "Cristiano was the best scorer at school! Congratulations son!"

He recently shared a photo of Ronaldo Jr. imitating his goal-scoring pose with the message: " Jr say daddy I'm going to be like you!!!What do you think?"

The young Cristiano has already dazzled in Madrid, showing impressive footwork in a kickabout with a few other Real player's children after a Champions League game.
