Cristiano Ronaldo's son scores for Juventus U9s

Cristiano Ronaldo's son scores for Juventus U9s

Cristiano Ronaldo Jr has been stealing his father's thunder in Turin as he once again scored for Juventus U9s on Sunday.

Sassuolo make a mess of clearing their lines from a corner, with the ball rebounding kindly to Ronaldo off the post for the 33-year-old to tap into an empty net. "I was a bit anxious with everything that happened after leaving Real Madrid to come here, but that's the way life is".

The former Bayern Munich winger was not blown up for a strong challenge on Federico Di Francesco in the build-up to the visitor's goal and appeared to elbow him as he attempted to get back to his feet.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor broke his duck just days after Juventus manager Max Allegri backed him to find form against Sassuolo.

His barren run had stretched beyond the 300-minute mark during a goalless first-half at the Allianz Stadium, but he did not have to wait long to make his mark after the interval.

"In games like this you have to score four goals. We mustn't lose our heads, even if these results destabilise us".

Juventus are still leading the Serie A standings with 12 points after 4 games played this season.

Inter Milan's woes were compounded with a shock 1-0 home defeat by Parma on Saturday ahead of their European opener against Tottenham at the San Siro.
