Brooklyn Beckham Joins Dad In Goodwill Game For Paris: Know What Happened Here

By on

Looks like David Becham?s son Brooklyn wishes to follow his father?s footstep as he was seen playing a friendly match as a Great Britain and Ireland XI side beat a Rest of the World team 3-1.

The match was in aid of UNICEF, a charity that Becks is the Goodwill Ambassador for, and the teams were sure to pay tribute to those who tragically lost their lives in the Paris attacks on Friday night by holding a minute?s silence before the game started and wearing black armbands, reported Yahoo.

According to BBC, Ex-England captain Beckham led the home team, managed by his former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson while former Chelsea, Real Madrid and AC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti managed the world team.

Beckham Sr crossed for ex-Manchester United team-mate Paul Scholes to head in the opener at Old Trafford. Michael Owen slotted in to extend the lead before Dwight Yorke guided in a shot to pull one back.

Goalkeeper Raimond van der Gouw let a cross through his legs to allow Owen to tap in his side’s third. France legends Zinedine Zidane and Patrick Vieira were both due to play but were not in the Rest of the World squad.

Beckham was replaced by his 16-year-old son towards the end of the match, but came back on because of an injury to Sol Campbell. “I wasn’t meant to join him but Sol came off,” he said. “Having Brooklyn out there was special.

“One of my lasting memories is winning the title and walking around with Brooklyn when he was 18 months.” “It was incredible,” said Beckham. “I’m very proud of what we achieved. It’s been a special day.”

?As the sun rises in this beautiful city we remember the people that have died and the families that have lost loved ones? Our thoughts are with you all? PrayForParis,? David wrote on Instagram that day.
