David Beckham's UNICEF charity game at Old Trafford was a great afternoon for a fantastic cause. 

The match, which saw some of world football's' greatest names come together, produced many brilliant highlights, such as Paul Scholes and Beckham linking up, Ronaldinho's no-look pass and Jamie Carragher's back and forth with Manchester United fans.

There was also a special moment for the Beckham family when Red Devils hero David was replaced by his 16-year-old son Brooklyn.

The teenager was not named on the teamsheet but was involved in the pre-match warm-up with the Great Britain and Irish team.

During the warm-up, Beckham senior was stretching and Brooklyn took it upon himself to deal out a cheeky nutmeg to his old man. Not that David was bothered, nothing could ruin his return to Old Trafford.

Great Britain and Ireland ended up winning the game 3-1 thanks to goals from Scholes and Michael Owen, who bagged a brace.

Beckham rolled back the years for the opening goal as his pinpoint cross found his former teammate and some United fans may have been wishing they had a player with that ability.

While the Red Devils have got a number of top-class wide players, their ability to provide a good ball into the box is often found wanting.

With Wayne Rooney struggling for form, there have been questions raised over the service he is being provided. Too often the United wingers are wasteful with this crosses. Surely Rooney would love to have a player like Beckham within the ranks.
