David Beckham used FA "connections" to make son Romeo mascot for England

David Beckham reveals that he used his "connections" within the FA to get his 13-year-old son Romeo the role as mascot for England's game against Switzerland

Former England captain David Beckham has revealed that he used his "connections" within the Football Association to give his son Romeo the chance to be a mascot for the Three Lions.

The youngster was led out onto the Wembley pitch by captain Wayne Rooney ahead of England's 2-0 win over Switzerland on Tuesday night.

Beckham has claimed that Romeo, who is one of the footballer's four children with wife Victoria, was given the mascot role as a 13th birthday present.

"Romeo is obviously very lucky as part of his 13th birthday, because of a few connections still at the FA, is one of the mascots, so he is excited," Beckham told ITV Sport.

In the match, Rooney became England's all-time record goalscorer by netting his 50th during the Euro 2016 qualifier.
