Shaqueel van Persie Scores a Screamer on his Dad, Robin!

The words Robin van Persie and screamer go perfectly together. Indeed, since moving to Arsenal the Dutch striker has scored some of the greatest goals ever seen in England.

When news emerged this week that van Persie had scored a phenomenal lobbed effort in training that had to be seen to be believed few ever thought that the van Persie in question was none other than the Arsenal striker's four year-old son Shaqueel!

Playing kick about with his son Shaqueel, van Persie, as any doting father would, gets in goal. Never in a million years did the World Cup finalist think that his son would leave him rooted to the spot looking like Manuel Almunia.

Shaqueel, about eight yards from goal jogs onto the ball and catches it perfectly on the half-volley, and then watches it sail over his helpless father into the top corner off the post!

With everything being relative - it looked like David Bentley's goal for Spurs on Almunia from the 4-4 draw at the Emirates in 2008...
