The son of Dutch legend Johan Neeskens scored his first goal for Colorado Rapids last week.
John Neeskens struck in the 2-1 defeat to Chivas USA.
Of his father's influence, he told the Denver Post: "He always supports me a lot. He calls me, gives me a lot of advice, which is always great.
"But he always tells me to play my game and to do the best I can, and everything will come with hard work."
