Brooklyn Beckham is a certainly a chip off the old block.

Here is a video the 15-year-old, who has been playing for Arsenal's Under-16 side, uploaded to his Instagram account last night, showing more than a glimpse of his famous father David.

In the short clip, Brooklyn takes down a diagonal ball with ease, and unleashes a thunderous shot which cannons off the crossbar.


The video shows Brooklyn playing on the right-wing too, just like his dad, who made 115 appearances for England, more than any other outfield player.

But what goal of David Beckham's does Brooklyn's effort most remind us of? This strike against Tottenham back in September 2001 looks eerily similar (1:40sec in).
