Rivaldo in action for Brazil.

This father and son duo achieved the rare feat of playing and scoring together, when the 1999 FIFA World Player of the Year brought himself out of retirement in June 2015 to play for Brazilian Serie B side Mogi Mirim.

In a 3-1 win over Macae in July, 43-year-old Rivaldo set up his 20-year-old son for the opening goal and converted a penalty for the second, with Rivaldinho also netting the third strike.

The comeback was short-lived for the Brazil legend though, who retired once again to become the club’s president in August.
