Watch hilarious celebration after Robbie Keane’s son Hudson runs off with ball and scores before Middlesbrough v Spurs

By | 16th January 2020

ROBBIE KEANE’s youngest son Hudson clearly shares the same eye for goal as his Tottenham legend father.

Keane’s two boys Robert and Hudson were both mascots for the FA Cup clash between Middlesbrough and Spurs earlier this month.

And it was four year old Hudson who stole the show before kick off as the captains and mascots stood with the match officials before kick off.

The youngster took the ball from the centre circle and ran half the length of the pitch before kicking the ball into the empty net.

Referee Stuart Atwell and his assistants couldn’t hide their amusement at the scene as they all broke into laughter as young Hudson ran off with the ball.

And the travelling Spurs fans serenaded him with chants of ‘Keano’ just as they had done for his father during his time at White Hart Lane.

To top it off, little Hudson then celebrated with an amazingly arrogant statue-like pose.

Some onlookers even compared him to Manchester United great Eric Cantona.

One on Twitter wrote: “I saw Eric cantona stand and stare like that when he scored absolute class.”

Another added: “Baby Cantona”.

Middlesbrough, who are managed by Jonathan Woodgate with Keane as his assistant, thought they were on their way to scoring a big upset in the January 9 clash when they went ahead five minutes into the second half through Ashley Fletcher.

However Jose Mourinho’s side were level just ten minutes later when Lucas Moura scored to earn the Premier League side a replay.

The sides met again in North London earlier this week with Spurs emerging 2-1 victors.
