Rivaldo and his son both score in Brazil's 2nd division

Sao Paulo: Former Brazil star Rivaldo and his son both scored in the same match in the Brazilian league's second division on Tuesday.

The 43-year-old Rivaldo scored once and his 20-year-old son, Rivaldo Jr., netted twice in Mogi Mirim's 3-1 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 Tuesday's victory allowed it to leave the bottom of the ladder.

Mogi Mirim hasn't lost in the two matches since Rivaldo's return. The former Barcelona playmaker said he was grateful and "happy to be able to score a goal and see his son score twice" in the same match.
