The FA produce their own version of the London Underground by replacing stations with the names of football's greats.

The Football Association have produced their own version of the London Underground map as part of their 150th anniversary celebrations.

The governing body have used the names of some of football's greatest players and managers to replace station names on the map.

Former England captain David Beckham has been placed at the stop of his hometown of Leytonstone, while Jack Wilshere represents Arsenal and West Ham United great Bobby Moore is placed as Upton Park.

FA general secretary Alex Horne said: "Over the last 150 years, millions of football fans will have made journeys to and from matches using the London Underground.

"Creating this special version of such an iconic map is a fitting way for The FA and London Underground to mark its shared 150th anniversaries."

The likes of former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and current Gunners boss Arsene Wenger appear on the map, as do legends Pele and Diego Maradona.
