David Beckham's Boys Take on Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva

Ian RodgersWorld Football Staff WriterApril 21, 2013

Being the sons of a world-famous footballer must have so many upsides that it is impossible to calculate the benefits.

But surely one of the best feelings for any such young football-mad child must be the chance to pit your wits against your dad's teammates.

Paris Saint-Germain stars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva found themselves challenged by David Beckham's sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, after a training session with the Ligue 1 club.

Sweden international Ibrahimovic is slide tackled by Romeo, while Brooklyn and his youngest brother Cruz combine to outfox Brazilian defender Silva.

All three Beckham boys have recently had trials with Chelsea (the Sun) and the video evidence offers some proof that the boys have inherited some skills from their dad, who is on a short-term deal with PSG until the end of the season after playing for Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and LA Galaxy during his career.

Beckham linked up again with former AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti at the Parc des Princes in January on a contract until the end of the current season.

The former England international played in both legs of the Champions League quarterfinal against Barcelona and is hoping to extend his stay with the French club after impressing during his short spell with PSG so far.

Beckham claims the club are keen to keep him beyond his current deal (Sky Sports), but if he doesn't, there may be space for three up-and-coming youngsters to make their mark in the future.
