Nicolo Zaniolo who plays as a midfielder for Italian club Roma on Tuesday night, February 12, recorded his name in the history books of the Champions when he scored a brace.

His brace gave his club a 2-1 win over FC Porto in the first leg of their round of 16 Champions League encounter.

Zaniolo has now became the youngest Italian player ever to hit twice in a Champions League tie and also equaled the record of Paris-Saint-Germain youngster Kylian Mbappe.

2018 World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe was the youngest to score in the knockout round in the Champions League in May 2017.

Nicolo Zaniolo was however over the moon after a record-breaking turn on Tuesday night led his side to victory scoring against legend Iker Casillas.

“It’s an incredible night, I am speechless and never would’ve expected such a thing,” he told Sky Sport Italia when questioned on his feat.

Nicolo, 19, is the son of striker Igor Zaniolo who enjoyed moderate success in the lower rank of the Italian football ladder.

He spent 2016/17 at Virtus Entella in Serie B, but his real breakthrough came in September 2018 after joining Italian giants Roma.

Meanwhile, Roma will have to protect their defense very well in the second leg in Portugal because FC Porto will only need to win 1-0 to qualify for the quarterfinal.

Naomi Osaka Sued By Former Tennis Coach, Demands 20% For Life

The tennis coach who began working with Naomi Osaka back when she was 13 claims her father signed a contract promising him 20% of her career earnings … and now he’s coming to collect.

The man behind the lawsuit is Christophe Jean — who says Naomi’s father, Leonard Francois, hired him to work with Naomi and his other daughter, Mari, back in 2011.

Jean says Francois couldn’t pay his rates at the time, so they struck a deal in which Jean agreed to accept 20% of Naomi and Mari’s tennis prize money and endorsement deals forever.

That’s not a typo … Jean says he has a copy of the contract where Francois agrees that the term of the deal is “indefinite.” It’s included in Jean’s suit, filed in state court in Florida.

Of course, Naomi — now 21 years old — has blossomed into a tennis superstar, currently ranked #1 in the world … and famously beat Serena Williams at the 2018 US Open.

ccording to the official WTA website, she’s made more than $10.8 MILLION during her career — and that’s not including endorsement money.

So, Jean wants his cut — at least $2 million — which is why he’s suing Naomi, Mari and Leonard.

The other possible issue … can a parent promise a cut of a minor child’s future adult earnings? And, can a judge enforce such a contract?

It’s not exactly cut and dry. We’re looking into it.
