David Beckham and Noel Gallagher put aside their club allegiances to share a three-course meal with friends at plush pizza restaurant Lucali in New York this week.
Becks is currently over in the States, having delivered a passionate speech at the United Nations in the Big Apple on Thursday, urging world leaders to do more to help help disadvantaged children.
The former Manchester United midfielder posted a photo of him with his hand on the shoulder of the former Oasis lead guitarist, who is an impassioned Manchester City supporter, with the caption: 'Another great night at Lucali. Thanks to Mark and the girls'.
Appearing on an episode of The Graham Norton Show earlier this year, Beckham revealed he was a self-confessed fan of the Manchester rock band and agreed to appear in the next music video for Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
'Obviously there's a big Manchester divide between United and City, but when I used to play for England I remember Noel being at one of the games and I went up to him and shook his hand, so of course I'll be in one of your videos,' he said on the chat show.
It is not known whether the pair have acted upon this revelation, but the former England captain would appear to at least be working on his budding friendship with Gallagher at the popular neighbourhood eatery.
Beckham looked in the mood to unwind after a busy week in which he gave a speech at the launch of Voices of Youth, a global community of youth bloggers giving young people the opportunity to learn about development issues.
