Brazil international Bebeto reveals his iconic 'baby' celebration during the 1994 World Cup.

Former Brazil international Bebeto created one of the iconic images of the 1994 World Cup in the United States with his "baby" goal celebration.

After scoring for the eventual winners of the tournament 19 years ago, the forward would head to the Brazilian supporters and make a rocking movement with his arms, as if cradling a very young child.

Bebeto was paying tribute to his newly-born son, who was born two days before the World Cup semifinal against the Netherlands.

When this father scored, he was joined by teammates Romario and Mazinho on the touchline in the moving celebration.

Time, though, moves on and the baby celebrated at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas is now a grownup.

Read on to learn more about the Bebeto and his boy and other footballing fathers and sons.
