Roy Keane Didn't Have Much Sympathy For 'Sloppy' England After Loss

You were planning the final where the parades were.

Keane believe Wright and fellow former England internationals Lee Dixon and Gary Neville took the Croatians too lightly before the game - and clearly was agitated in the aftermath by their jokey manner.

Roy Keane laid into Ian Wright on ITV World Cup coverage of England v Croatia.

As England face Croatia in their biggest match for nearly three decades, there's something distracting fans watching at home - Roy Keane's tan.

It was pretty clear that Keane had been waiting for his moment to bite back at Wright after his early tournament confidence had become more than a little tiresome and when he picked his moment, he went with all guns blazing. Wrighty was having none of it.

"You're talking about the final? The final and (finalists) France", said Keane.

"I made the point a few weeks ago, I know a bit tongue-in-cheek but you have to focus on one game and football's coming home".

Roy Keane said: "I don't mind ya being happy but you were getting carried away".

The Irish pundit, not known for his sympathetic outlook, told Wright - who missed out on the 1994 World Cup finals when England failed to qualify - that he has "no idea what it's like to get to a final". "People weren't even expecting us to get to the semi-final, why couldn't we have got excited about being in there?"

Another added: "Roy Keane is a disgrace to football and should never be allowed to be involved in the game".

A fired up Keane started the debate as he suggested many England fans had lost track of reality as they got carried away with the excitement of their World Cup run, with Wright eager to snap back at the Irishman in typically jovial fashion.

One said: "You could learn from Roy Keane, try being open and honest and telling the truth".

Let's hope Wrighty and Keano are sat next to each other on the plane home from Russian Federation.
