Gary Neville picks his best ever Ireland XI

We have all had the argument before about who should be included in the greatest Irish team ever.

Given or Bonner, Keane or Brady, McGrath or Staunton, the debate could go on all day.

Gary Neville was in town recently and the former right back selected his Irish one to eleven. As expected, there was one or two spanners thrown into the mix.

Neville could be right when he says that team might just beat England. He was also not shy about his home town bias picking six former Man United players in his team.

You may be wondering though who the goalkeeper is? Gary Kelly on the wing and in goals? I can assure you it is not a misprint but is indeed the son of former Republic of Ireland keeper Alan Kelly Sr.

Kelly made 236 appearances for Bury between 1989-1996. Bury of course is a club that the Neville family hold close to their hearts, the main stand at Gigg Lane was renamed the Neville Neville Stand in 2015 after the death of Gary's father. So we can see why he chose Gary Kelly in goal.

We all dream of a team of Gary Kelly's!
