Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher compete in hilarious game of zorb football

West Ham United v Leicester City - Premier League

For many years now football lovers have been enjoying the rivalry between co-pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher.

The pair, who appear on our screens as part of the Sky Sports team, are seen competing against each other on multiple occasions throughout each season.

As former Manchester United and Liverpool players, the rivalry between them runs deep and it certainly hasn’t died down despite them hanging up their boots.

They’ve been known to have races across pitches, as well as taking each other on to see who would be the better linesman.

In the latest edition of their rivalry, Neville and Carragher decided to face each other in a game of zorb football as part of the Friday Night Football coverage at Carrow Road.

Zorb football involves the upper half of the player being encased in a bubble, but the legs and feet remain unimpeded.

Their match was shared on Soccer AM’s Twitter account and captured the attention of thousands of football fans.

A football, a small area to work in and former Manchester United and Liverpool players? There was only going to be one result…carnage.

In the early exchanges, Carragher dominates the play, almost scoring a scooped effort only for Neville to tip it over the bar.

Carragher then strikes the post moments later during an early siege on Neville’s goal.

The hilarious game continues, with the pair taking every opportunity to knock into each other.

Then the magic moment arrives.

Neville smashes into Carragher, sending the former Liverpool man flying, before chipping the ball over him expertly into the far corner.

The ex-Manchester United right back seems as surprised as anyone, raising one arm aloft Shearer-esque, as he races away screaming in celebration.

This kind of reaction to finding the back of the net is probably to be expected from a guy who only scored five times in 400 Manchester United games.

There is no way that Carragher will take this lying down, so don’t be surprised to see a zorb football rematch in the coming weeks.
