Man Utd legend Roy Keane leaves ITV pundits laughing with brutal assessment of Iran after England thrashing
MANCHESTER UNITED legend Roy Keane left his fellow ITV pundits laughing today.
That’s after delivering a brutal assessment of Iran after their 6-2 defeat to England.
The Three Lions ran riot in Monday’s World Cup group stage opener.
Bukayo Saka led the way with two goals as Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford, Jude Bellingham and Jack Grealish also netted.
And Iran were all-but hopeless as they softened the scoreline with a controversial penalty in the 13th minute of injury time.
The stage is now set for England to take control of the group when they face the US on Friday.
But Keane reckons Iran are going to find things a lot tougher against Gareth Bale and Wales.
The Irishman had his fellow ITV pundits in stitches this evening when he was asked to give his verdict on England’s win.
Hailing Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions, Keane concluded his assessment with a withering look while saying: “But Iran… shocking.”
In fact, Keane appeared to be so disgusted with Iran’s performance that pundits Eni Aluko and Hal Robson-Kanu burst out laughing.
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON THE WORLD CUP
It’s not the first time Keane’s pals have been left tickled by his World Cup views.
Yesterday, Gary Neville claimed Saudi Arabia could have the edge over group opponents Argentina, Mexico and Poland.
He said: “Second in that group? Saudi Arabia? They’ll bring tens of thousands of fans because they can drive over the border.”
This provoked a typically sarcastic response from Keane, who fired back: “And can they play for them?”
This saw Neville and Micah Richards erupt into laughter, with Keane himself having a little chuckle.
