Roy Keane summed up England's World Cup exit with one, brutal sentence

England v Croatia World Cup 2018 Roy Keane tan

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.

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

Manchester United legend Roy Keane and Arsenal icon Ian Wright were reacting to the game.

Croatian have too much class in their ranks and goals from Ivan Perisic and, in extra time, Mario Mandzukic saw them win 2-1.

"I made the point a few weeks ago, tongue in cheek, but you have to focus on one game". You were planning the final, where the parades were.

Keane, never one to let a potential dust-up pass, wasn't letting Wright forget that 1966 world champions England had been sent packing.

Roy Keane said: "I don't mind ya being happy but you were getting carried away".

As fellow pundits Gary Neville and Lee Dixon laugh, Wright says: "We weren't talking about the final, we were having a laugh. We were happy! Why can't we get excited?"

Keane did credit the English players for their efforts in reaching the semis but reserved his highest praise for the victors, Croatia. "You need a reality check".

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.

The quartet of former footballers were last together earlier in the tournament and viewers got a real kick out of Keane telling his colleagues to cool the jets after they beat Panama 6-1.

'It was all about the final. You know how hard it is to get to these finals or even get to the World Cup.

"We weren't talking about the final".

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

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