Since retiring from football at the end of the 2010-2011 season, Neville won acclaim as a Sky Sports pundit.

Neville said: "Roy asking me to be a part of his staff and to work with the national team is not only an honour but a very special moment for me.

"I had absolutely no hesitation in accepting this role and I am relishing the opportunity to work alongside Roy and the team at the Euros and through to the next two tournaments."
