Zidane junior scores on debut for Real Madrid

FOOTBALL: His father was once rated the best player in the world, now Enzo Zidane has begun his journey into professional football.

The 21-year-old son of Zinedine Zidane didn't start too badly, scoring for Real Madrid 18 minutes into his debut with his first shot for the club where his father is coach.

He was brought on at half-time in the Copa del Rey victory over Cultural Leonesa at the Bernabeu.

Madrid won the tie 6-1, beating its third-tier opponent 13-2 on aggregate to reach the competition's last 16.

Enzo, the eldest of Zidane's four sons, made almost 50 appearances for Madrid's reserve team before being given his senior debut.

Former France midfielder Zinedine Zidane, 44, played 227 matches for Real after joining from Juventus for a then-world record $77.5 million in July 2001.
