Bradley Wright-Phillips - New York Red Bulls - iso - reacts during a game - October 2018

Bradley Wright-Phillips and his brother Shaun are second-generation soccer royalty, the sons of England and Arsenal legend Ian Wright and highly accomplished players in their own right. 


Could a third wave of family talent be on the rise? 


On Monday the New York Red Bulls' star striker took to Instagram to post a video of his young son Ryan scoring an impressive goal for his youth team, accompanied by a simple but memorable caption: "RWP"...

The middle sibling of BWP's three children, Ryan turns 7 this month. And based on the small sample size provided by this highlight, he seems to have both the dribbling nous of his uncle Shaun (who was a winger until calling time on his playing career last month) and the finishing instincts of his dad.


Perhaps the most amusing part of the Insta post, however, is the star-studded comments section, where the likes of Kei Kamara and Marlon Harewood weighed in with compliments and wisecracks.
