Lionel Messi's 4-year-old son Mateo shows incredible skills like his father

Lionel Messi, Barcelona superstar, is one of the most prolific goals scorer in modern day football having netted over 600 career goals for club and country.

The Argentine's feat over the years has seen him win laurels both at the collective and individual levels.

He has five Balon d'Or awards, six UEFA golden boots, and a number of other prestigious prizes since he made his senior debut for Barca over a decade ago.

However, the 32-year-old seems to have inspired his second son Mateo, who was caught on camera scoring superb goals on his father's training pitch in Spain.

The only thing this means is that the youngster has clearly been studying his father and watching the video clips of his performances for both Barcelona and Argentina.

After scoring, the four-year-old also celebrated just like his father after his first goal - kissing both hands and raising them up moments later.

Mateo eventually makes a beeline towards the camera before putting his finger to his lips in a silencing motion.

The youngster's second goal was more like that of Messi - dribbling from the middle of the pitch before powering a low short into the corner of the post.

Mateo then fell to the ground clutching his face as if he's been crunched with a late tackle, but Mateo has one major difference with his father as he uses predominantly right-foot.

The Mirror however reports that the four year old could be taking lessons from another top class star, Cristiano Ronaldo .

Messi's long-time rival recently suggested the pair should have dinner together, which the Argentine has responded to in a positive manner.

Messi told Sport: "Yes, I don’t have any problem with that. "I’ve always said that I don’t have any issue with him.

"We might not be friends because we’ve never shared a dressing room together but I always see him at award shows and there’s no problem.

"I don’t know if there will be a dinner because I don’t know if our paths will cross for obvious reasons, each one of us has our own life and our own commitments.

"But obviously I would accept the invitation."

Maybe Mateo and Ronaldo's son Cristiano Jr could join their fathers in a quick game of two-on-two in the garden to round off the evenings entertainment.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Barcelona produced a stunning second half display to dispatch Real Betis 5-2 in their first La Liga home game this season.

However, the highlight of the match was how Lionel Messi's 3-year-old son Mateo innocently celebrated Nabil Fekir's opening goal of the match.

Moments later, Luis Suarez, who was also seated by his teammate cautioned the boy after his hilarious celebration.
