Wilshere posted a photo of himself with Chris Kamara and Ben Shepherd, the presenters of Sky Sports’ Goals on Sunday show, following his appearance on the programme on Sunday.
But the eagle-eyed Neville, who knows Wilshere well thanks to their time working together with the England national team over the past three years, couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a cheeky dig at the 23-year-old.

“You sat on a cushion there?” Neville tweeted, “Higher than Kammy!”
Wilshere, who isn’t much taller than 5ft 7in, hasn’t responded to Neville’s tweet just yet - perhaps he’s waiting for the perfect moment, or maybe he’s genuinely a little bit offended. Who knows?
Wilshere's return will boost Arsenal
The technically-gifted midfielder hasn’t made a single appearance for Arsenal so far this term after suffering a hairline crack of his left fibula in pre-season.
He is expected to return to action before Christmas, but may struggle to get straight back into Arsenal’s starting line-up after the team’s decent start to the 2015-16 campaign.
The Gunners have picked up 22 points from their opening 10 Premier League matches, leaving them joint top of the table alongside Manchester City.
There’s a growing feeling that this could finally be the season Arsenal end their long wait for the Premier League title, with most of the clubs around them struggling for consistency.
Wilshere’s return will be a welcomed boost for Arsenal - the midfielder might be injury prone but he’s a class act - and the player himself will be desperately hoping he can end the season with a Premier League winners’ medal.
