Proud mum Coleen posted a clip of the magical touchdown with the words “GO KLAY”.
Klay scooped up a bouncing ball virtually on his own line before slaloming through this way and that to thrust it down at the other end.
And sports fans on Twitter were almost as quick as Klay’s scorching run in the way they rushed in to praise him.
One hailed his “great balance great vision” while another said: “He’s absolutely rinsed them” – with a laughing-crying emoji.
It’s not yet known precisely how Klay wants to develop his sporting passion.
And of course at just eight that’s understandable.
Wayne Rooney proudly saw another of his four sons, Kai, sign for Man Utd, for whom he recently scored four goals against Liverpool U-12s
Kai, on the other hand, seems focused on progressing in football, like his famous dad.
But unlike Rooney Sr, Kai has chosen to START his football career at Old Trafford.
He might eventually face the typical frustrations of United academy products if he stays on track and encounters their abundance of talent, from both home and abroad.
But for now Kai could hardly be doing better.
Back in May he bagged a hat-trick and three assists in a 6-3 win over Stoke.
Cristiano Ronaldo‘s same-aged son, Cristiano Jr, is also in United’s youth system.
What price both junior jewels making it through to the Old Trafford first team?
