Rio de Jeneiro: The 43-year-old Rivaldo scored once, from the penalty spot, and his 20-year-old son, Rivaldo Jr., netted twice in Mogi Mirim’s 3-1 Serie B win over Macae.
Rivaldo, who is also the president of Mogi Mirim, ended his retirement last month to try to help his team overcome a difficult start in this year’s championship.
Mogi Mirim was last in the 20-team standings until the victory saw it climb off the bottom of the table.
Mogi Mirim hasn’t lost in the two matches since Rivaldo’s return.
The former Barcelona play maker said he was grateful and “happy to be able to score a goal and see his son score twice” in the same match.
