The 19-year-old played 79 minutes on the right wing, just like his father did during his career for Preston North End – on loan – Manchester United, Real Madrid and England, and provided several chances for his team to score.

Wearing the No.11 shirt, he featured alongside ex-Manchester United trainee Harvey Neville, the son of Phil Neville who manages Miami’s first team.

Miami owner Beckham appointed his former Manchester United and England team-mate Neville as head coach in January following a spell as England Women boss.
