Highlights of Romeo Beckham's first professional start for Fort Lauderdale have emerged and fans on social media really aren't impressed.
It was a quiet one for Beckham, who is the second son of England icon David, and he only managed to touch the ball 19 times in the entire game.
Lauderdale opted to attack down the left-hand side and it regularly left Beckham isolated and on his own.

The highlights above from Sky Sports show Beckham whip in two crosses, in trademark fashion just like his father.
Neither managed to create a goalscoring opportunity however and with Lauderdale defending a 2-1 lead, he was substituted for Abel Caputo.
It would be for naught however as Tormenta equalised late on which saw the game end 2-2.
Beckham will improve over time, but it hasn't stopped Twitter from having a pop at his showing Stateside.
He has his Mothers Footballing Abilities

Quite possibly the worst highlights reel in history

Might well be the worst 28 seconds of highlights of a player you could see.
Doing him dirty putting the substitution in...

He played 79 mins and that's the best you could find for highlights... :grimacing:

It's a good thing he's a Beckham. Football ain't for him https://t.co/15cp1vgdO8

Beckham is said to have impressed his coaches and is working on the physical side of his game, so there is room for improvement.
As well as Beckham, Lauderdale also have the son of another former Manchester United player among their ranks.
Harvey Neville, son of Miami boss Phil and nephew of Gary, left the Red Devils academy earlier this year to link up with his dad.
