When asked what his best ever goal is, he instantly said: ‘Greece. Goal against Greece.’ Neville quickly shot back: ‘Not the halfway line one, no?’ as he raised his arms to imitate Beckham’s famous celebration at the time.
Beckham replied: ‘Actually, I forgot about that one, yeah! That one. We’ll say the halfway line one’ as the pair cracked up laughing.
After claiming his favourite city is London, the 47-year-old then teased Neville and other former United team-mates for criticising the capital city but then spending a lot of time there as well.
He stated: ‘That’s why you spend so much time down here! All of you lot (used to hate it). “Ooh, London, East London, it’s all flash cockneys”. You’re all down there now! “Oh, can you book me a restaurant?”

‘Butty (Butt) texted me the other day -“Becks, can you get me in this restaurant?”‘
Neville laughed and responded: ‘What’s the best thing about knowing David Beckham? You always get a seat in a restaurant. It’s unbelievable. The contacts are incredible.’
Beckham then revealed his opinion on the best player he’s ever played with, going for a former Real Madrid team-mate.
After looking back at Neville and joking ‘Apart from you?’, he simply added: ‘Zidane…Zizou’ before also stating he would want the legendary French playmaker to take a last-minute free kick to win a game.
