Romeo Beckham was hailed for “driving” Brentford forward on debut having signed for the club on loan from Inter Miami.

Son of former Manchester United and Real Madrid star David, Romeo signed a short-term loan deal with the Brentford B-team last week having trained with the side during the MLS close season.

Beckham, who will return to Inter Miami at the end of the campaign, came on as a susbtitute for the last 35 minutes of Brentford’s clash with Erith and Belvedere FC and played a part in their stunning comeback to win 3-2.

Brentford boss Neil MacFarlane was full of praise for the young winger.

As quoted by the Bees’ official website, he said: “Romeo really drove us forward in the wing back position.

“He created some really good moments for us with some terrific deliveries. He had an opportunity to score as well and I was thrilled with him and the group in general for keeping on the front foot. We never gave up and we got through.”

MacFarlane continued to hail Beckham, whose dad was in attendance among the 553-strong crowd.

He added: “Our subs made an unbelievable impact and that’s what we want, everyone pushing each other and keep helping the group move forward because we had a brilliant 2022 and we just want to keep getting better in the new year.

“No matter what change in the shape or personnel I thought the response was incredible. We were on the front foot through Max Dickov, Romeo (Beckham), Kyreece (Lisbie), Byron (Wilson), all of them were making big impacts, J’Neil (Bennett) too when he moved position.

“We kept going and when it’s difficult to break teams down in late stages in the game we just kept pushing them back and we had a little bit of luck on the last goal, but we kept going with our quality.”

Beckham has impressed for Inter Miami II last season, scoring two goals and providing ten assists for the club owned by his father.
