Cassius Dwyer is taking a page out of his parents’ books.

The 4-year-old son of Major League Soccer player Dom Dwyer and longtime US Women’s National Team star Sydney Leroux, Dwyer has shown an aptitude on the soccer field at an early age. In fact, according to his mum, the toddler scored his first-ever goal in his recreation league on Tuesday.

And Dwyer celebrated accordingly — by attempting to rip his pinny and jersey off.

The 30-year-old Orlando Pride star posted the hilarious video of her little tike scoring and subsequently tugging at his jersey. He also jumped into the air, spun 180 degrees, and landed with his fists clenched by his side in classic Cristiano Ronaldo fashion.

Since his mum posted the clip to Twitter Tuesday evening, Dwyer’s antics have garnered more than 100,000 views.

“Cassius scored his first goal today and went to take off his shirt,” Leroux wrote. “I. Am. Dead. 😭”
