David Beckham’s son, Romeo, has made his professional soccer debut for Fort Lauderdale in a 2-2 draw with the South Georgia Torment on Monday.
The 19-year-old played 79 minutes on the right wing, just like his father did during his career for the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid, and England.
“Blessed to have made my pro debut tonight for @fortlauderdalecf. Full focus onto the next match,” Romeo said in a post on social media.
Wearing the number 11 shirt, he featured alongside ex-Manchester United trainee Harvey Neville, the son of Phil Neville, who manages Inter Miami, which owns and runs Fort Lauderdale.
Inter Miami co-owner David Beckham appointed his former Manchester United and England teammate Neville as head coach in January following a spell as England Women’s boss.
Miami are currently ninth in the Eastern Conference of the Major League Soccer, after a 4-0 defeat to the New York Red Bulls on Friday.
