Roy Keane tears into England fans for getting carried away

Keane had missed the last few games of ITV's coverage from Russian Federation but he will be there for the final, on Sunday, and was in-situ for the semi-final clash between England and Croatia.

"Roy Keane is just bad I am sorry". But Wright, clearly a little emotional after the nerve-shredding defeat to Croatia, was not intimidated by the Irish hardman's reputation.

The former Manchester United midfielder was alongside Ian Wright, Gary Neville and Lee Dixon.

The spat came after Keane claimed his English co-pundits "got ahead of themselves" by daring to dream about football coming home.

"You're talking about the final?"

And a third claimed: "Roy Keane was in the studio trying to undermine John Stones who was huge tonight - he's a smug little s***". I know England may have thought it was a bit tongue and cheek a few weeks ago, but you've got to focus on just one game at a time.

Stones is very comfortable on the ball, but you've got to have the art of defending, and I always talk about players smelling danger. And I was right. You need a reality check man. Get excited when they get to the final man! "We were just having a laugh with you", Wright said in his famous London accent. "We were happy, you weren't happy for us to be happy at that time".

As Keane built up steam, Wright interrupts to insist he never declared England were going to win the World Cup.

"People weren't even expecting us to get to the semi-final, why couldn't we have got excited about being there?" It was the semi-final, group matches.

The game was then decided late into extra-time when Juventus star Mario Mandzukic broke the hearts of a nation and sent Gareth Southgate's men home.

He also added: "You were talking about the final".

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