Gary Neville is England’s most-capped right-back in history and he spent his whole career at Manchester United. He skippered the U18s to victory in The FA Youth Cup Final in 1992 and in the same year made his first-team debut in a UEFA Cup tie against Torpedo Moscow.
He was one of ‘Fergie’s Fledglings’ – with brother Phil, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt – who all made an impact in a youthful United team. He replaced Paul Parker as first-choice right-back and went on to win eight Premier League titles, three FA Cups, one League Cup and two Champions Leagues.
His England debut came against Japan in the ‘Umbro Cup’ at Wembley on 3 June 1995 and his brother joined him in the team for the China friendly before Euro 96. Neville played in five major tournaments, only missing the 2002 World Cup through injury, and he made eleven appearances in European Championship Finals.
Neville, who holds UEFA A and B Coaching Licences, was appointed as a Coach to Roy Hodgson’s England staff in May 2012, signing a four-year contract with The FA.
