Beckham’s sons dazzle with football skills in PSG training

World of Sport

Being David Beckham's son must have its advantages - and one of the most fun is that you get to have a kickabout with some of the best footballers in the world.

Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz tackled Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and company when they were treated to a run out at Paris Saint-Germain's training ground on Friday.

And as our video shows - they're not half bad.

Ten-year-old Romeo looked to be a combative midfielder in the Roy Keane mould as he flew into tackles on PSG's millionaire stars - at one point dispossessing Ibrahimovic with a perfectly-timed sliding challenge.

Brooklyn, 14, looked the spitting image of his father as he took on Thiago Silva - though the youngster's skills wouldn't have looked out of place coming from Leo Messi.

First Brooklyn bamboozled Silva by dragging the ball behind his standing leg and knocking it past the defender; then he passed to youngest brother Cruz, 8, with a Ronaldinho-style 'elastico'.

Cruz looks a useful player, too, spraying the ball around like a young Paul Scholes.
