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?
Al estilo de su famoso padre. :eyes: :soccer:

As mentioned earlier, Romeo will join former Manchester United academy prospect Harvey Neville in the Fort Lauderdale setup.
"It was his decision to leave Manchester United and every move he's made has been like that," he said.
"He has taken some brave moves in his career, he came out to do some training and to see his dad and really enjoyed it."

Neville continued, saying: "He impressed everybody but it is quite difficult (for me) because when he's at the club he is just another player.
"So I have left a lot of the decision making on Harvey to other people at the club, Anthony Pulis (Inter Miami assistant coach) has taken a real interest in him.
"I am harder on Harvey than on any other player in the team but ultimately he has signed for the USL team and it's a great opportunity for him.
"He's so excited to be here and it is a new adventure for him."
