Watch Brooklyn Beckham Replace Dad David Beckham in Charity Match

Watch Brooklyn Beckham Replace Dad David Beckham in Charity Match

David Beckham’s UNICEF charity match was filled with a number of great moments – but Brooklyn Beckham replacing his dad after he received a standing ovation from Old Trafford is certainly the best.

The former Manchester United wideman was the driving force behind the charity’s ‘Match for Children’ as he led a Great Britain & Ireland XI against a Rest of the World team.

Several top stars past and present attended the game, including Jamie Carragher, John Terry, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Michael Owen for the home team.

While Cafu, Figo, Robert Pires, Ronaldinho and Dwight Yorke were all part of a star-studded RotW team.

Lucky fans got the chance to see Beckham’s side run out 3-1 winners, with Paul Scholes opening the scoring before Michael Owen hit a double and former United hero Yorke scored for the visitors.

But arguably the best bit was 16-year-old Brooklyn replacing dad David late on in the clash – and it was great to see Old Trafford remember a former hero and give a great welcome to his eldest son.

Beckham was also instrumental in the opening goal for Scholes, as he produced a trademark first-time cross from the right for his ex-United team-mate to head home.
