Ian Wright Mocks Roy Keane's Irish Accent During On-Air Spat

England v Croatia World Cup 2018 Roy Keane tan

It's been comfortable for them, but when it's comfortable you can get sloppy.

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 has lambasted England supporters for getting carried away about winning the World Cup before they had even faced Croatia in the semi-final.

Keane continued: "Everyone's talking about the final and football's coming home", before Wright interjected with his own verbal volley.

Two fiery players during their own playing days as prominent figures of arch rivals Manchester United (Keane) and Arsenal (Wright) in the 1990s, the duo seem to have carried on their rivalry into the TV studio in what social media users have dubbed "one of the TV moments of the year".

"Before the game, the whole talk was about the final, the final", began Keane, directing his comments at Wright. "The final and (finalists) France", said Keane. And I was right.

'We wasn't talking about the final, we were just having a laugh with ya.

The yen is seemingly oblivious to this deterioration in Korean peninsula discussion. Trump later added on Twitter that the decision would "save a fortune".

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

England are out of the World Cup and Roy Keane is reminding everyone when they should be happy. You need a reality check man. Get excited when they get to the final man!

"In football you've got to respect the opposition but also smell when they're there for the taking".

Keane responded saying England should have taken the tournament "one day at a time".

Following the match, ITV pundits discussed some of the key areas where the game was won and lost, but Roy Keane was adamant that John Stones was to blame. "You've never been to a World Cup finals".

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