England got carried away with talk of the final, insists Roy Keane

Roy Keane ITVRoy Keane's tan was the talking point ahead of England's clash with Croatia

Football pundits and former global players Roy Keane and Ian Wright went head-to-head in an amusing live on-air debate, after England's exit to Croatia in the World Cup semi-final.

Following England's heartbreaking loss to Croatia after extra time in the semi-finals of the epic footballing tournament that has been Russian Federation 2018, the pair got into a right old ding-dong in the TV studio.

Hard to argue with Roy Keane on this one.

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.

Keane suggested that England's "It's Coming Home" banter meant everyone had got a little carried away before playing Croatia. Stones is ball-watching, and then when the ball goes in he's looking at people saying nobody gave me a shout - you're not going to get a shout in a World Cup semi-final! "The final and (finalists) France", said Keane.

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".

However, he was interrupted by Wright, who insisted: "We wasn't talking about the final, we were just having a laugh with ya". We were happy, you weren't happy for us to be happy at that time, ' Wright said.

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.

'Get excited when they get to the final.

Keane did credit the English players for their efforts in reaching the semis but reserved his highest praise for the victors, Croatia.

Gareth Southgate's men still have one more game to play as they will take on Belgium in the third-place play-off on Saturday.
