Like father, like son: Rivaldo and son score in the same match

You just can't stop Rivaldo from scoring - and it looks like he's definitely passed his genes on.

The Brazil legend - who resumed playing this month after hanging up his boots in March last year -  and his son Rivaldinho were involved in all three of Mogi Mirim's goals during a 3-1 victory over Macae in the Brazilian second tier.

Rivaldo's pass led to a cross that was headed in by Rivaldinho after just three minutes before putting away a penalty for the second.

The 2002 World Cup winner then had a hand in the build-up that saw Rivaldinho spring the offside trap and tuck away the third goal with a cool finish.

 

 

After the game, the son acknowledged the special moment with an Instagram post, which read: "What a night! Historical! Too happy, once again playing alongside my biggest idol, my father and happier that I even scored some goals!"

 

 

Rivaldo Senior is also Mogi Mirim current president.
