David Beckham mobbed by fans after watching Lionel Messi lead Inter Miami to remarkable win over Dallas: ‘Thank you for the love… what a game’
David Beckham was mobbed by fans after watching Lionel Messi inspire Inter Miami to a remarkable win over Dallas on Sunday night.
The MLS club co-owner watched from the stands – alongside his wife Victoria Beckham and their children Cruz and Harper – as Miami came from 4-2 down to win on penalties.
Victory took them to the quarter-finals of the Coupe de la Ligue and ensured a continuation of their fairytale start with Messi.
“WOW what a night in Dallas, thanks for the love,” Beckham wrote on his Instagram page. ‘What a game.’
Stunning footage, released after the game, appeared to show Beckham leaving Toyota Stadium after the penalty shootout.

A mass of supporters and camera phones greeted the 48-year-old, who shook hands with fans as they shouted for the former England captain and patted him on the shoulder.
It was an equally chaotic scene as they drove away from the stadium, with fans lining the streets and rushing for high-fives as Beckham threw his arm out of his car window.
Fans ignored warnings to stay off the road – instead the screaming masses raced along the pavement and into the street, forcing Beckham’s car into the middle lane.

“Thank you Dallas,” Beckham posted alongside the videos on Instagram. “Incredible scenes.”
He was joined in Texas by his co-owners Jorge and Jose Mas. And before the game, it looks like Beckham tasted a typical Texas delicacy.
He posted a photo alongside his son Cruz, in front of a sign for Blu’s Barbeque & BBQ Catering, which is just over a 15-minute drive from Toyota Stadium.
“When in Rome, go big or go home…BBQ,” Beckham wrote alongside the photo.
