Footage of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez’s sons netting fabulous goals for Barcelona’s youth team, social media erupts after video gets viral.
Barcelona’s stalwarts Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have been exceptionally well for the club since years, now with their days of playing at the club are limited, Barcelona might struggle in their absence.
However, footage of their sons playing in Barcelona’s youth team might cheer the fans up for a bit, both of them featured for Barcelona’s U-8 side appeared on the social media.
During a match, earlier this month, Messi’s eldest son Thiago can be seen scoring twice during a 9-2 win. Thiago’s first goal came after beating defenders with pace before opening his body and scoring with his right foot.
Unlike his father who prefers to score from his left foot. His second was another neat finish with his right foot as he sent the goalkeeper the wrong way.
Meanwhile, the sons of Gerard Pique (Milan) and Luis Suarez (Benjamin) also played in the same match. Benjamin also scored a fabulous goal in the match along with Thiago.
After holding off a defender by pushing him to the floor, mini-Suarez produce a brilliant strike with the left foot. He proceeded to celebrate with a ‘Klinsmann’ dive.
Although, those two should not be expected to be footballers as of now, making it to the top of the game is a distant thought, as they are too young to be pressurized with the hype.
Apart from them, even Cristiano Ronaldo’s son Ronaldo Jr. has also been impressive with Juventus’ youth teams and co-incidentally Thiago and him were born 869 days apart – the exact same age difference as their dads.
Thus it would be a great extension to the rivalry between both names if both make it to the top of the game in future.
