There was a moment to remember in the Unicef Match for Children when David Beckham was replaced on the pitch by son Brooklyn.

The former England captain, who was a key organiser of the game, gave way with 15 minutes to go for his teenage son.

Beckham had set up former Manchester United team-mate Paul Scholes for the opening goal in the match that Great Britain and Ireland went on to win 3-1 against the Rest of the World.

The senior Beckham did later come back onto the pitch for another late cameo.

Brooklyn is a keen footballer and has spent time on the books at Premier League side Arsenal.

Beckham's other children Romeo, Cruz and Harper also acted as mascots ahead of the game.
