Roy Keane BRUTALLY breaks down England’s loss to France

Roy Keane broke down England’s World Cup exit in a matter-of-fact way that only he can do. 

England was launched out of the World Cup after a 2-1 loss to France on Saturday in the quarter-finals. Harry Kane had a great chance to equal the score late on but uncharacteristically struck his penalty high-over the crossbar. 

Speaking in the ITV studio, Keane bluntly broke down the England player’s performance, claiming that they needed to put their foot on France’s throat. 

“That’s where the players have to take control.” Keane said.

“I suppose it might be a lack of experience in big tournaments and big games, I know a lot of the England players have won trophies at club level.

“When we were at the game against France the other night, I describe when you\re in that position and you have your foot on somebody’s throat, you’ve got to press down. Don’t ease off.

“If you take the pressure off a good team like France, and when you’re in the quarter-finals they’re going to have quality, as soon as they eased off the got punished for it.”

Keane stated that England are ‘finding a way to lose’ in the bigger games.

“It’s fine details, if Harry Kane scored that penalty (who knows). You go back to it, you have that play and possession, you’ve got to find a way to win.

“What England are doing in a lot of these big games, is they’re finding a way to lose…

“I think Gareth should stay, but in his mind if he thinks he has ran his race for them, then don’t hang around and move on.”
