Following Jesse Lingard's incredible goal against Wolves on Monday, Neville and Carragher were in the Sky studio picking their squads for the Euros this summer.
As always the two fierce rivals turned friends (?) got into the topic and each other. Neville surprised his fellow pundit by claiming Harry Maguire was more crucial to the squad than Harry Kane.
Despite that, it was Southgate's controversial omission of Trent Alexander-Arnold that was most hotly disputed. Former Liverpool defender Carragher obviously had the Reds' full back in but Neville thought that Southgate wouldn't.
Whilst the discussion in the studio was one thing, the pair hilariously continued in the car park afterwards, with Neville sharing their barbs on Instagram live.

Before the whole thing got taken outside, Carragher called his colleague 'embarrassing' for leaving Alexander-Arnold out of the squad.
"From Carragher saying that basically no-one wanted to grow up to be a Gary Neville, we've come a long way. We've got hundreds of them here!" the former United player said.
"We've got five right-backs and Gareth Southgate is in a position whereby, it's unbelievable. We've got that many talented right-backs to pick from. I can see the conundrum and the challenges that Southgate has got."
Carragher was then asked if the 22-year-old would make his squad. "Yes. He's a unique talent. He's not the same as any other full-back. Most full-backs, even the attacking ones, the greatest ones going forward...it is up and down in a straight line," the former Liverpool captain said.
"He's a playmaker. I've said he's Kevin De Bruyne playing right-back. That's what he is. He's different."
After explaining that he would take Trent, Neville then explained why Southgate might not, adding, "I think the reason he won't take him is because he's there to win a tournament - he will trust the players like [Kyle] Walker, [Kieran] Trippier in a back three or with a wing-back, maybe [Reece] James because he has more power and strength to handle a [Kylian] Mbappe or [Cristiano] Ronaldo. I don't think he will take him."
Carra wasn't happy though, hitting back to say, "If you pick Kieran Trippier ahead of Trent Alexander-Arnold, that's embarrassing."
Still, neither of them picked Jadon Sancho so can we be convinced either knows what they're on about...
