Roy Keane Didn't Have Much Sympathy For 'Sloppy' England After Loss

Keane had missed the last few games of ITV's coverage from Russian Federation but he will be there for the final, on Sunday, and was in-situ for the semi-final clash between England and Croatia.

In the end, Keane ended up having it out with former England striker Ian Wright, who defended England for beating the expectations and getting as far as the semi-finals, and when Keane wouldn't hear him out, Wright simply resorted to making fun of the way Keane pronounces the word "final" - although Keane got his digs in as well, telling Wright: "You're a grown man".

Wednesday's game is Lovren's biggest on the global stage thus far, and it is perhaps his toughest test after the Champions League final, which he aced.

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

A fired up Keane started the debate as he suggested many England fans had lost track of reality as they got carried away with the excitement of their World Cup run, with Wright eager to snap back at the Irishman in typically jovial fashion. "Everyone was talking about the final, football's coming home".

Keane replied: 'I don't mind you being happy, but you were getting carried away. We were happy, you weren't happy for us to be happy at that time, ' Wright said.

Well, they have to play Belgium on Saturday in the third-place play-off game, but they won't be contesting the final against France.

Mario Mandzukic settled the tie 10-minutes from time to send the tiny nation into their first World Cup final. This game can kick you where it hurts, and England will have to suffer that tonight. You know how hard it is to get to these big finals, or even get to a World Cup. "You know what I'm talking about, relax yourself".

Croatia progress to their first ever World Cup final on Sunday to take on 1998 winners France.
