World Cup winner Rivaldo and his 20-year-old son both score in the same game

The Brazilian legend was involved in all three goals.

IT WAS A case of like father, like son on Tuesday evening as Brazil legend Rivaldo and his 20-year-old son were both on the scoresheet in the same league fixture.

The 43-year-old World Cup winner decided to come out retirement last month in order to help Mogi Mirim – the club he is also president of – in their battle against relegation.

In his second game back, Rivaldo was invovled in all three goals as his side recorded a 3-1 win in the Brazilian second tier.

His 17th minute penalty was sandwiched between two goals from his son against Macae.

Rivaldo had originally retired in March 2015 after a glittering career in which he represented the likes of Barcelona, AC Milan and Olympiacos.
