David Beckham has sent his congratulations to his son after Romeo scored a free-kick reminiscent of his famous father. Beckham senior is celebrated as one of the best free-kick takers of all time, having curled in numerous efforts for England, Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy – and it seems he has passed on the skillet.
