David Beckham reacts to son Romeo scoring 25-yard free-kick for Inter Miami

 

David Beckham is seen in the Royal Box before Rafael Nadal of Spain plays against Taylor Frirtz of The United States during their Men's Singles Quarter Final match on day ten of The Championships Wimbledon 2022 at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 06, 2022 in London, England.



David Beckham was left bursting with pride after seeing his son, Romeo, net a 25-yard free-kick for his MLS franchise, Inter Miami II.

Beckham senior was one of the most clinical set-piece takers around during his iconic playing career; so much so that free-kicks became the Manchester United hero's trademark. And it appears that Romeo has learnt a thing or two from his
old man down the years judging by his stunning strike for Miami's second-string.

Romeo looked eerily like his famous father before he stepped up to bend a sumptuous long-range strike into the bottom corner of the net during Inter Miami II's 3-1 win over Orlando City II in the MLS Next Pro league.

And Beckham instantly shared his son's strike on his Instagram account with the message: "Well done mate so proud. First goal in a MIAMI shirt.” Romeo replied “Love u dad that was for you.”

Beckham has already shared a number of touching messages about his son ever since Romeo signed his first professional deal with his father's MLS franchise last September. The 19-year-old - who also plays on the right-wing - is in the ranks alongside Phil Neville's son Harvey, who plays in defence.

Neville is currently the head coach of Inter Miami's senior team, who are struggling in the Eastern Conference this year. Miami are currently in 10th spot having won just six of their 18 games so far this term.

Although Miami are struggling in the MLS, Romeo is impressing in the MLS Next Pro league. The teenager has racked up seven assists in 14 appearances and made headlines earlier in the season after he grabbed a hat-trick of assists in one match.

But it still remains to be seen if Romeo - who spent time on Arsenal's books as a youngster - has what it takes to step to the senior ranks and make an impact in the MLS.

Despite playing for his father's team, Romeo is unlikely to get an easy ride in Miami with Neville bossing him. And the Inter Miami chief - who came through the ranks with Beckham at Manchester United as a youngster - revealed earlier this year that Beckham has insisted that Neville has to be harder on Romeo "than anyone else".

Neville told The Sun : “I think the first thing that David said to me was, 'You have got to be harder on him than anyone else'. He has got to work harder than anyone else to get into that team because there will be questions, there will be expectations on his shoulders.”
