Back on a Brit pitch

 

David Beckham (pictured) is headed back to play for Manchester United – for one night only. The former England captain will play at Old Trafford in an exhibition today to honor the career of former teammate Gary Neville. Beckham says he is thrilled to be pulling on the red shirt he wore for 10 years until 2003. Beckham said, “I get goose bumps every time I think about stepping out at Old Trafford again.” Neville graduated with Beckham from the same United youth team that produced Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes and was also best man at the midfielder’s 1999 wedding. Beckham told MLSsoccer.com that “putting a United shirt on again never gets old.” United is hosting Juventus to honor Neville after his retirement this season. – Associated Press
