Lukas Podolski has scored some brilliant goals in his career. 

The Germany striker is currently playing for Turkish club Galatasaray, but he took some time out before the Euros to watch his son play. 

It's safe to say he wasn't disappointed.

Podolski's goal-scoring gene has obviously been passed on through the family, because 'Poldi Junior' as he calls him hit the back of the net from a difficult angle and from distance. 

Granted, he may have been playing mini-soccer, but that doesn't take anything away from the lovely strike, especially from one so young. 

Here's the clip

Podolski (as in the former Arsenal player, not the child) posted the clip on Instagram so you can see it here: 

Marvelous stuff.

Proud Dad Podolski will be hoping to emulate him at the Euros this summer, where Germany will be among the favourites. 

He will face competition from Mario Gomez and Thomas Muller for a starting berth. 

Germany should sail through the groups, matched in Group C with Northern Ireland, Poland, and Ukraine, but there will be plenty of competition in the latter stages. 

Decent form

Poland will almost certainly present the toughest challenge in the group, boasting the likes of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, Fiorentina's Jakub Blaszczykowski, and Podolski's former Arsenal team-mate Wojciech Szczesny. 

Fortunately, Podolski has been in fine form, scoring 17 times and providing 8 assists this season. 

And if all else fails, they might just be able to rely on Podolski junior coming through the ranks in a few years.
