The challenges of toilet rolls have become frequent since Europe got locked up due to the coronavirus – and three well-known former Manchester United players are the latest celebrities to try their hand at staying the House “.
The trend of social media kicking with a roll of toilet paper has become a popular activity with the item hoarded by panic buyers due to the coronavirus outbreak.
And Gary Neville and his brother Phil, as well as former midfielder Paul Scholes, all joined the hype and participated in the toilet paper challenge posted on the Twitter page of Manchester City-owned Hotel Football Gary .
Gary Neville was one of three Man United players in the 92 class to take up the challenge
The toilet paper challenge was posted on Hotel Football’s Twitter page, which Neville owns.
The trio are part of the famous 92 class, which also includes David Beckham, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs, all of whom made history with United.
Former right-back Gary Neville was the first and he appeared to be handling more than 10 goalkeepers, although there was some controversy with one of his touches coming from his chest rather than his foot.
Neville then named his former teammate from the United States and England Scholes to try his luck.

Scholes rose to the challenge under the bright sun before launching the scroll in the upper corner
Taking advantage of the bright sun, he hit nine times before ruffling the toilet paper in the upper corner of the goal in his garden, as he had done on the football field a few times in his playing career.
Phil Neville was appointed by Scholes, and the coach of the England women’s team was by far the most enthusiastic of the participating trio.
Neville was heard shouting “go for it” for himself and he even made a playful jibe to his former teammate while exclaiming “are you looking at Scholesy?
Scholes then called on Phil Neville to accept the challenge and give it his best shot

However, the remark seemed to cause Neville to lose focus and shortly after the toilet paper fell to the floor, much to Neville’s visible disappointment.
The challenge comes weeks after Gary Neville announced that staff at his Hotel Football and Stock Exchange hotels would not be out of his pocket for the duration of this global crisis – ensuring they would receive full pay as habit.
The 45-year-old also revealed that the properties would be made available free of charge to NHS workers.
