The Beckhams turned out in force for yesterday’s UNICEF charity match at Old Trafford.

Romeo, Cruz and little Harper joined dad David and big brother Brooklyn, who stepped out onto the pitch wearing his dad’s famous No. 7 strip at the Manchester stadium.

David captained (and played for) the Great Britain and Ireland team, managed by Sir Alex Ferguson, who took on the Rest of the World XI team, led by Zidane Zidane.

Brooklyn, 16, took over from his old man for the final 15 minutes of the game before David replaced Sol Campbell – meaning the two got to share the pitch together.

Proud mum Victoria gushed over the cute moment on Instagram writing: “I love my boys. Incredible game today for a wonderful cause @unicef. What David has achieved makes me so proud.I love u X”

The match took place despite the devastating attacks in Paris on Friday night. Victoria took to Instagram early in the day to explain the decision, saying: ‘The terrible events in Paris last night are devastating for so many. Our thoughts are with all those who have been caught up in these events, their families and friends.

‘In Manchester today, at the Match for Children in aid of UNICEF, Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham and players will be paying tribute to those who have lost their lives with a minute’s silence and by wearing black armbands.

‘The match will see players and fans of all nations come together to unite and help create a safer world for every child around the world.’
