Ian Wright Risks Knuckle Sandwich In On-Air Row With Roy Keane

Roy Keane

England have reconnected with their supporters and found a young team they can admire while reaching a World Cup semi-final.

England are not making the final - they have a 3rd place playoff on Saturday - but Keane will, back on punditry duty this Sunday afternoon.

Manchester United legend Roy Keane and Arsenal icon Ian Wright clashed after England's World Cup semifinal defeat to Croatia.

Croatian have too much class in their ranks and goals from Ivan Perisic and, in extra time, Mario Mandzukic saw them win 2-1.

Keane may not have been impressed by Wright's attempts to mimic his Irish accent as voices were raised in the ITV studio, but the discussion appeared to end on a good note, with fellow panelists Gary Neville and Lee Dixon doing their best not to laugh as the duo went toe-to-toe.

Keane suggested that England's "It's Coming Home" banter meant everyone had got a little carried away before playing Croatia.

Mr Keane criticised the way they were planning parades and thinking about the final before they even got there.

Four key battles in Croatia-England semifinal
England were knocked out of the tournament by Croatia after their European rivals fought back from 1-0 down to win in extra-time. Less than five minutes were on the clock when Kieran Trippier curled a delicious free-kick past the helpless Danijel Subasic.

"I made the point a few weeks ago, tongue in cheek, but you have to focus on one game".

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. You needed a reality check.

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

"You are a grown man, you have played the game".

'Get excited when they get to the final. We were happy, you weren't happy for us to be happy at that time, ' Wright said.

That caution proved to well founded as Mario Mandzukic's extra-time victor fired Croatia into Sunday's final against France as England's expense in a tense semi-final in Moscow, with Keane biding his time before revisiting his previous discussion with Wright.

You've got to be aware of it and deal with it yourself.
