When asked what his best goal ever is, he immediately said: ‘Greece. Goal against Greece.’ Neville shot back quickly: “Not the center line, right?” as he raised his arms to imitate Beckham’s famous party at the time.

Beckham replied, ‘Actually I had forgotten that one, yes! That. We say halfway through line one” as the couple burst into laughter.

After claiming that his favorite city is London, the 47-year-old subsequently teased Neville and other former United team-mates for criticizing the capital, but also spending a lot of time there.

He stated, ‘That’s why you spend so much time here! You all a lot (used to hate it). “Ooh, London, East London, they’re all flash cockneys”. You are all down there now! “Oh, can you book a restaurant for me?”

“Butty (Butt) texted me recently – ‘Becks, can you get me into this restaurant?”‘

Neville laughed and replied, ‘What’s the best thing about knowing David Beckham? You are always in a restaurant. It’s unbelievable. The contacts are incredible.’

Beckham went on to reveal his thoughts on the best player he’s ever played with, going for a former Real Madrid team-mate.

After looking back at Neville and joking with “Aside from you?” he simply added, “Zidane…Zizou” before also saying he’d like the legendary French playmaker a last-minute would take a free kick to win a match.
