Roy Keane tears into England fans for getting carried away

12 July 2018

In terms of global experience and games at the highest level of European football, England's journey to the World Cup semi final was a commendable achievement.

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

England are out of the World Cup and Roy Keane is reminding everyone when they should be happy.

The Three Lions lost 2-1 after extra time and left fans devastated.

Alongside Gary Neville, Ian Wright and Lee Dixon, Keane went to town on an England team in danger of spurning their best chance of reaching a World Cup final in a few generations (of players, at least): 'It's back to the old England'.

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

Keane stuck to his original point, though, replying: "I don't mind you being happy, but you were getting carried away". You were planning the final, where the parades were.

Ever the stony-faced pragmatist, the Irishman and former United captain Keane accused ex-England striker Wright of getting caught losing focus on the immediate games of the World Cup. You needed a reality check. "We were just having a laugh with you", Wright said in his famous London accent.

"The whole yesterday and today they were talking about the final the final the final", Keane began.

"The fact is we were happy, and you weren't happy with us being happy".

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. Take it one game as it comes. You know how hard it is to get to these finals or even get to the World Cup.

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