The 56-year-old former England goalkeeper was asked by Harry Redknapp to stand in the goal for a warm-up match against the naked Frenchmen before their rematch against the Germans in 'Harry's Heroes', but he quickly walked off the pitch.

David told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I just walked off - I was having none of that.

"It's funny, I was stood next to Harry and I said 'if they come out here naked, I'm out', and he said 'no way'.

"Then they came down these stairs, banging their chests and things flopping everywhere. I took my gloves off and said 'find another goalie', and walked off. I was worried about injuring them."

David was replaced by Matt le Tissier for the warm-up match, who found the whole thing hilarious.

Matt said: "I think David Seaman's reaction to the naked football will stay in the memory for a while."

The naked players apparently caught the attention of the TV crew, as the female production staff stepped on the pitch to have a closer look at the mischief.

Harry recalled: "They would all suddenly appear to watch the football, they didn't seem interested before, and then they were all having a look."

The 73-year-old football manager was delighted to spend another show with the retired stars, admitting he enjoyed making the second series more than the first.

He added: "The more time I could spend with them, the more enjoyable it was, I just loved every minute of it."
