Cristiano Ronaldo won three awards at the Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai. But he certainly had a nightmare during the interview. He was asked about Vincius Jr.’s copying his celebration in the Spanish Super Cup played in the home stadium of Al Nassr. However, he misunderstood the question and instead spoke about his son. He said, “It’s good when you have a family, a big family like me. So, it is good to be proud of your kids, Jr to do it his way. I think he has a good talent. Still needs to improve more. I have to teach him some tricks. But, I see it in a good way, he likes to play football, and he has the drive, so he makes me happy.”

Cristiano Jr has been in superb goal-scoring form like his father for the youth side of Al Nassr. His last two goals that were made viral on social media had glimpses of his father. In the first goal, he dispatched the penalty under pressure and did the Siiu celebration. While for the second goal, he convincingly beat his marker in the air to score a brilliant header.

Over the years, I've dedicated myself to understanding the intricate details of the game, both on and off the field. What's fascinating is that my beloved club is Newcastle United, and I've been on a rollercoaster journey with them, from their triumphant promotion from the second tier to the recent takeover and even their remarkable qualification for the Champions League last season.
