VIDEO: Like father, like son - Kluivert Jr opens Ajax account

Promising youngster Justin Kluivert scored his first Ajax goal in Sunday's Eredivisie encounter with Excelsior at Woudestein to follow in the footsteps of his father Patrick.

The gifted winger somewhat surprisingly made Peter Bosz's starting XI because of Kasper Dolberg's absence due to injury and the 17-year-old proved his coach right with a well-taken goal to level the scoring.

Kluivert junior found the net in the 32nd minute with a cool finish after a cross from Hakim Ziyech to restore parity after Kenny Tete's own goal had handed Excelsior the lead.

The attacker's first Eredivisie goal came 10 years and one day after his father last struck in the Eredivisie, scoring PSV's only goal in a 5-1 defeat versus Ajax.

Justin Kluivert is regarded as one of the biggest Dutch talents in his age category and made his first-team debut in the 3-1 win over PEC Zwolle back in January.
