Manchester - David Beckham is headed back to play for Manchester United - for one night only.

The former England captain will play at Old Trafford in a friendly match Tuesday to honor the career of former team-mate Gary Neville.

He says he is thrilled to be pulling on the red shirt he wore for 10 years until 2003.

Beckham says "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.
