Rivaldinho, Son Of Rivaldo, Scored A Screamer In The Europa League
It probably goes without saying, but Rivaldinho is the 22-year-old son of Brazilian legend Rivaldo. The two even managed to play together for Mogi Mirim in the Brazilian Serie B in 2015, actually scoring in the same game in July of that year.
Now, little Rivaldo plays for Dinamo Bucuresti in Romania, and his side were handed a difficult draw in the third qualifying round of the 2017-18 UEFA Europa League against Spanish side Athletic Bilbao.
Aymeric Laporte gave the away side the lead in the 21st minute, but Rivaldinho sent the home supporters and his father into raptures with his powerful strike in the 54th. It would end 1-1.
The second leg at the San Mames is scheduled for August 3.
