ATLANTA, GEORGIA—Looks like a second-generation Beckham is set to make a name for himself in professional soccer.
Former England captain David Beckham’s son Romeo, 19 made his professional football debut for Inter Miami CF’s reserve team over the weekend.
Sources said Romeo, one of Beckham’s five children with wife and fashion designer Victoria, played for American third-tier club Fort Lauderdale in their 2-2 draw with South Georgia Tormenta on Sunday.
Fort Lauderdale is the sister club of Miami, co-owned by Beckham, that competes in League One of the United Soccer League.
In his professional debut, Romeo played for 79 minutes on the right-wing, just like his father did during his career for the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, and Paris Saint-Germain.
“Blessed to have made my pro debut,” Romeo said in a post on Instagram.
At the moment, Miami is in the ninth position in the Eastern Conference of the Major League Soccer after a 4-0 defeat to New York Red Bulls on Saturday.
