The NFL was in London again on Sunday as the New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams clashed at the cathedral of rugby, Twickenham.

As you probably expect, Odell Beckham Jr. was the undoubted star of the show, with fans around the stadium roaring with expectation every time the Giants wide receiver got his hands on the football. 

Beckham is probably the biggest star to ever play in a London game and it showed, with even top flight football stars being excited to meet the former LSU man. David Alaba and Franck Ribery of Bayern Munich were just two of them. Scroll down to see the footage.

Thanks to the NFL UK twitter account, we now have this footage of Ribery, Alaba, Jerome Boateng and even Marko Arnautovic of Stoke City all on the sideline before kickoff speaking with and meeting OBJ.

It appears that Beckham and Alaba are already good friends, with the Austrian midfielder and American wide receiver linking up in the summer as Beckham got to show off some of his soccer skills at the Bayern training centre. And then there's this clip of them kicking it to Lil Uzi Vert.

The two young stars also met up after the game in the Giants locker room, with Alaba posting a video of him and OBJ celebrating a Giants win on his Snapchat account.

The Bayern boys - and Arnautovic - got to see Beckham make a few catches as the Giants became the first NFL team to ever win a Twickenham, beating the Rams 17-10.
