The two were seen high-fiving and having a great time as the goals went in, and David was pictured kissing his daughter in celebration.

David revealed on The Graham Norton Show last month that Harper has a passion for football, just like her dad.

“Harper is playing every Sunday and loves it. The boys don’t play and it’s heartbreaking,” he told Graham.

“They have a talent but it’s down to Harper now. I get very enthusiastic when watching her.”

“I just want to say how very proud we all are of every single player, they are doing amazingly well and the whole country is behind them!!!

“As you can see Harper was so excited to meet the team & is so excited for the game…. Come On England @lionesses@philipneville18.”

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan branded Becks “creepy” and “weird” for kissing his daughter Harper on the lips after he defiantly shared a video of himself giving Harper, seven, a peck after trolls previously slammed it as “wrong”.

“I got actually criticised for kissing my daughter on the lips the other day,” David said back in 2017.

“I kiss all my kids on the lips. Brooklyn, maybe not. Brooklyn’s 18, he might find that a little bit strange. But I’m very affectionate with the kids.”
