Romeo Beckham, 19, Made His Professional Debut In America Overnight

Romeo Beckham made his professional football debut overnight and he started on the right wing - exactly like his dad David.

The 19-year-old signed a contract with with Inter Miami's reserve team Fort Lauderdale earlier this month.

He lined up in the number 11 shirt alongside Harvey Neville, son of Miami coach Phil, but the pair didn't have much of an impact on the match.

It ended 2-2 on the night and the entire game was streamed on YouTube which you can check out below.


Beckham touched the ball 19 times throughout the game and always looked eager to get into crossing positions.

He looked to be on a different wavelength with most of his teammates in the early stages and they mainly attacked down the left.

But the second half saw Beckham start to drift inside more and he had a few neat link-ups with Neville.

Manager Darren Powell substituted the youngster in the 79th minute with Fort Lauderdale hoping to hold on to a 2-1 lead.

They didn't manage that however and are now winless in their last three.


While Beckham's crosses didn't bring much on Sunday, fans will be hoping he can flex his free-kick pedigree soon.

It's clear he's had the best teacher in the business.

Earlier this year, he replicated David's iconic goal against Greece at Old Trafford that helped England qualify for the 2002 World Cup.

He showcased his football talent on Instagram when he curled one into the top corner using a technique similar to David's.

Romeo composes himself, places his left foot forward [like his dad always did] and delivers the goods with a cracking strike. Remind you of anyone?


Beckham is said to have impressed his coaches and is working on the physical side of his game.

Could he eventually have a career at a high level? Watch this space.
