Man Utd legend Phil Neville son Harvey makes MLS debut for Inter Miami clash with Montreal and has instant impact

 

HARVEY NEVILLE made his MLS debut – but it’s not the talk of the dinner table. The full-back, 20, was brought on by dad Phil in Inter Miami final home game of the season and instantly helped bring a smile to DRV PNK Stadium.

His cross was deflected into the net to bring Miami back into the game against Montreal who had stormed into a 3-0 lead.

Neville’s assist didn’t spark a comeback but it did ensure his old man’s team finished in sixth to set up a play-off crunch with New York City next weekend instead of meeting the dangerous Canadians again who ended sitting pretty in second place.

Just don’t expect the Neville family to be talking about it at home.

Harvey told SunSport: “I was so happy to get on the field, make my debut and contribute.

“My dad and I don’t talk about Inter Miami at home, yeah we watch matches together but we won’t speak too much about our own team.

“We try to keep everything separate, even if we are now in the play-offs.

“I’m not sure what my mum and sister talk about but I am just proud to be part of this team.”

Neville, a former Manchester United youth player, was brought into the first team this season and although he came on against Barcelona in a friendly and in a US Open Cup match, this was his first taste of MLS action.

He added: “It was amazing to make my debut, I didn’t know it would happen this season but I am so pleased to get out there and help the team.

“The strongest area of my game is to get on the ball and try to affect the games and get forward as much as possible.”

Inter Miami take on New York City at Red Bull Arena on Monday next week.
