Romeo Beckham: How did 19 year-old son of Manchester United legend David Beckham play against Barcelona?

Beckham is seriously pursuing a career in football and enjoyed a few minutes in a pre-season friendly against Barcelona

Romeo Beckham played a cameo role as his Inter Miami side were convincingly beaten 6-0 at home to La Liga outfit Barcelona, who kicked off their United States tour against the club owned by David Beckham.

Barcelona now switch their attention to the weekend as they face bitter rivals Real Madrid in Las Vegas on Sunday, 24 July, Juventus in Texas on Wednesday, 27 July and New York Red Bulls in New York on Sunday 31 July before heading back to Spain.

He wasn’t the only famous football offspring as Phil Neville’s son, Harvey Neville, also enjoyed a cameo role.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid winger wasn’t present to witness his son’s performance against the Blaugrana, who fielded superstars such as Frenkie de Jong and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Beckham has impressed for the Inter Miami second team, and now will be hoping to make the step up as he seriously pursues a professional football career.

How did Romeo Beckham do against Barcelona?

It’s hard to gauge just how well he did against Barcelona, as he only played a brief cameo, coming on as a substitute in the 89th minute, playing around five minutes.

It may be a case of Neville slowly looking to get the 19-year-old gradual minutes, as he has only just returned to the game after a five year hiatus.

Is Romeo Beckham good at football?

A video surfaced online of Romeo scoring, which was his first goal of the season for the Inter Miami second team, scoring a peach of a free kick, which was his dad’s trademark.

It’s a new venture for Romeo, who was previously in the Arsenal academy in 2015. He took five years off football where he took up tennis, frequently practising with Andy Murray.

What is his age?

Romeo is the second eldest of four children that David and Victoria Beckham have had during their time together, with only Brooklyn being older than Romeo.

He is currently 19-years-old, and will celebrate his 20th birthday in just over a months time, with his birthday being 1 September.

What is his height?

His thin build makes him appear slightly taller than he is, with him being ever so slightly above six foot, less than an inch taller than his father.

Who is his ex-girlfriend Mia Regan?

Mia Regen is a 19-year-old model, who was the partner of Romeo Beckham for three years, before the duo separated just earlier this month.

Their separation came as surprise to many, as they were always photographed on outings, and regularly appeared on each other’s social media accounts.

It also came at a time when there were brief rumours that Romeo was to take a huge step in their relationship and propose, just mere weeks after his older brother Brooklyn married actress Nicola Peltz.

The couple called it quits after their work schedules clashed, with Romeo pursuing his footballing career, with a source saying that the long distance nature of their relationship took its toll.

They continued saying that “they’re both lovely young people and remain very fond of each other, and the family love Mia”.
