Marcelo's son Enzo scores hat trick in his Real Madrid youth debut

So much for sons emulating their fathers.

Today's example is from 8-year-old Real Madrid youth product Enzo Vieira, who has a very famous dad in the football world -- Real and Brazil star Marcelo.

Now we all know that pops is an ultra attack-minded left-back, blessed with the skills of a midfielder and who makes his living causing havoc in and around the opponent's box -- then occasionally tracking back to tend to his defensive duties.

And one would think he'd have taught his eldest son the family business, and Enzo would be storming the left touchline with impish abandon like dear old dad, right?

Not so fast.

It appears the younger Vieira isn't interested in all that running and would rather -- like the in-his-30s Cristiano Ronaldo -- pitch up next to the opponent's goalkeeper and make the scoreboard do the work instead.

And in his very first game for Real's Benjamin B youth team, he did just that, bagging the little Los Blancos' fourth, fifth and sixth goals in what looked like a thumping defeat of overmatched Aravaca on Thursday.

Take notes, dad!

But Enzo, who is right-footed, is not totally interested in shedding all the markers of the Vieira name. Like dad, the flowing mane matches his impressive game, and for that we are eternally grateful.

Keep it up, kid.
