‘Like father, like son’ – Watch Romeo Beckham score sensational free-kick Man Utd legend dad David would be proud of | The Sun

BRAVO, Romeo! David Beckham's son showed the family jewels are safe with him – when it comes to taking free-kicks.

The Brentford B striker displayed the same deadball mastery as his father – and from an even more extreme angle.

Romeo, 20, was captured in training swerving a shot from the left corner of the box into the far stanchion.

And it's not the first time he's gone Beck to the future with a glimpse of the technique honed by his dad for England, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

In particular, Romeo curled his first goal for parent side Inter Miami II with a low 30-yard free-kick against Orlando last July.

Becks senior, who is the MLS club's co-owner, responded then by posting: “Well done mate so proud. First goal in a MIAMI shirt.”

Ex-Arsenal kid Romeo replied: “Love u dad, that was for you.”

Now the starlet is back across the pond in his home city trying to impress Premier League side Brentford's back-up team.

He's impressed so far – but knows he'll need far more than free-kicks on the training ground to get anywhere near the Prem.

And despite the delicious way he bent the ball in the latest clip posted on Instagram, some comments focused on the dodgy antics between the sticks as the ball sailed in.

A few fans noted "Like father, like son" but one wrote: "Some extremely questionable goalkeeping on show…."

Another said: "Not being funny, that keeper is worse than Cal the dragon."

Romeo, though, hopes to slay such cynicism, as he focuses on succeeding as a professional footballer in his own right.

 His personal life seems settled too – as he posed happily with model girlfriend Mia Regan for another social media snap.

In fact the background of that picture excited some fans as much as his free-kick.

That's because the more sharp-eyed observers noticed a signed top of Cristiano Ronaldo in his United days hanging up.

But it's thought he supports Arsenal – leading to some online banter with his dad.

Romeo is the second oldest of Victoria and David's four children. Oldest son Brooklyn, 23, dabbled with a football career before becoming a photographer and then a chef.

Third son Cruz, 17, is a talented singer and David's daughter, Harper, 11, is the youngest in the family.
