David Beckham’s son Romeo makes professional football debut for Inter Miami’s reserve team

Romeo Beckham, the second son of former England captain David, made his professional football debut for American third-tier side Fort Lauderdale on Sunday.

The 19-year-old joined the reserve team of Inter Miami, the Major League Soccer side founded and owned by his father, earlier this month and his first outing came in a 2-2 home draw with South Georgia Tormenta this weekend.

Beckham Jr started on the right wing, just like his father used to do for Manchester United and England, before being hooked off on 79 minutes without a goal or an assist to his name.

The teenager did, however, some flashes of brilliance and linked up well with Harvey Neville – son of former United star and current Miami head coach Phil – who started for Fort Lauderdale in the middle of the park. 

The Beckham and Neville sons combined well in the 57th minute of the match, with Romeo putting in a testing cross which his team-mate headed just wide. 

Fort Lauderdale took the lead twice in the first-half through Mitchell Curry and George Acosta, inbetween Azaad Liadi’s first-half equaliser for Tormenta, but Marco Micaletto scored a late equaliser for the away side after Romeo had been taken off the pitch. 

The match marked Romeo’s first outing in professional football having been involved in the game since his early teens.

The winger was on the books at Arsenal alongside his brothers Brooklyn and Cruz, but quit the north Londoners’ academy in 2015 as his father revealed his son had separate interests other than football. 

While Romeo has undergone a modelling career since leaving the Gunners, the teenager kept playing football while he was studying at Millfield School, while he also trained under England’s attack coach Alan Russell, who also coaches the likes of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling in individual sessions. 

He began training with his father’s team Inter Miami earlier this year, before signing professional terms with reserve team Fort Lauderdale at the start of September.

Romeo’s move came just a few months after Harvey Neville signed terms with the club, with the midfielder quitting the Manchester United academy this year to join the American side. 

Harvey’s father Phil was appointed as the Inter Miami head coach in January of this year and is currently guiding his side to a mid-table finish in his debut MLS season. 

Miami have an outside chance of reaching the MLS’ final series play-offs this season, with Neville’s side three points behind seventh-placed Philidelphia Union in the Eastern Conference, with 11 matches to go. 

While Beckham’s franchise have improved their results over the summer, which saw them go seven matches unbeaten in July and August, a 4-0 home defeat to New York Red Bulls on Saturday sent them crashing back down to earth.
