Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson recently appointed Neville’s older brother Gary to his backroom staff for the tournament, which caused the Toffees skipper to be linked by some to follow suit
"It was an honour to be linked but there was no approach. I am still a player. I think it would have been impossible for me to do it," Neville told reporters.
The veteran has already experienced international coaching, having travelled to Belgium with the Under-21 squad for a Euro 2013 qualifier and the Everton man says that he was delighted to be given the chance to learn.
"To go away with the Under 21s was an amazing opportunity," he enthused.
"I see David Moyes and other managers being obsessed with detail and sometimes think: 'Switch off', but you can't.
"Those three days were a perfect learning experience. It also made me realise what a special thing being involved for your country was."
