After England’s World Cup exit to Croatia last night, Roy Keane and Ian Wright were involved in a bizarre on-air row.
It got heated in the studio when Keane interjected and said England got too carried away by talking about a potential final and how ‘it was coming home’, rather than focusing on the task in hand.
“Before the game, the whole talk was about the final, the final,” began Keane, directing his comments at Wright. “Everyone was talking about the final, football’s coming home.
“I don’t mind you being happy, but you were planning the final, where the parades were. You need a reality check man. Get excited when they get to the final man!
“You are a grown man, you have played the game. You know how hard it is to get to these big finals or even get to these World Cup. You know what I’m talking about, relax yourself.”

Keane even warned Wright to “watch yourself” after the Arsenal legend did an impression of him.
Voices were raised in the ITV studio, but the discussion appeared to end on a good note, with panelists Gary Neville and Lee Dixon doing their best not to laugh.
