    There's also Giovanni (son of Diego) Simeone, Daley (son of Danny) Blind, and Jordan (son of Henrik) Larsson making their way in the football world.

    A few other current/recent ones in the League of Ireland
    Evan (son of Paul) Osam
    Richie (son of, erm, Richie) Purdy
    Kurtis (son of Paul) Byrne
    Jake (son of Gavin) Dykes

    In terms of making me feel old Anton Reilly whose recently moved from Dundalk to Warrenpoint Town up north is the son of Anto Reilly who was playing for Dundalk in the First Division until about 10 years ago.

    Random spot, but Rudi Vata's son, Rocco, is with Celtic's academy (the U12s).

    Rudi Vata was one of the first Albanians to play abroad (with Celtic). I think he played against us in 1993, back in the days when not all matches were televised. I remember listening on Radio 1 as Anton Rrakli gave them the lead, but Stan and Cas (I think?) eventually pulled the win out of the bag.

    He was Aiden McGeady's agent for a while as well.

    There was a weird reason for that not to be televised. It was meant to be shown but the Albanian broadcaster were asking for a hape of cash from RTÉ. I was distraught as I have gotten off early from school to watch it and had to make to do with crappy highlights later and the radio during!

    Marcus Thuram scored for France's U20s against Vietnam in the U20 World Cup today.

    He was 1 when his dad scored twice in the real World Cup.

    Young Kluivert's stock has risen after a brilliant hat-trick yesterday. Can't stop watching that first touch for his third goal!

    I see Jonathan Klinsmann is making his senior debut in nets for Hertha Berlin against Ostersunds tonight.

    I see Angus Gunn playing for Norwich tonight in goal is the son of Bryan Gunn, also a Norwich keeper.

    Erling Haland - son of Alfie - looks like he's going to be a huge player.

    9 goals in the U20 World Cup earlier this year against Honduras.
    Scored a hat-trick on his CL debut tonight for Red Bull Salzburg; first player to do that since Rooney.
    It's his fourth hat-trick of the season - he's scored 17 goals in the first 9 games of 2019/20, which is incredible stuff

    And it all started with not scoring against UCD in the Youth League less than 2 years ago!

  16. Thanks From:

    Just trying to keep the guy grounded is all!

    Serious career ahead of him surely, and he'll need someone like Conor Kearns to keep it all in focus at times
