David Beckham Tackles Field Intruder During Gary Neville Testimonial Match (Video)
Manchester United played a testimonial match for Gary Neville against Italian club team Juventus at Old Trafford earlier today, but the real star of the match would end up being another former Man U icon, David Beckham.
Neville retired in February at the age of 36 after he felt that he could no longer compete at England’s highest level. As a show of appreciation for the 400 appearances that Neville made in a Red Devils uniform, Manchester United scheduled this game to give the 20-year vet the farewell he deserves.
In addition to all the current Manchester United players, the team also welcomed David Beckham to play in the friendly match, and although he was unable to make his mark on the scoresheet, Beckham did manage to produce a highlight reel play when he tackled a young field intruder prior to delivering a corner kick.
