Roy Keane, Ian Wright and Ashley Cole were covering the England vs Poland game last night at Wembley Stadium London. Keane was adamant that John Stones has to do better, where as Wright wasn’t too impressed with Nick Pope in goals.

“What we saw there, I’m quite pleased with Pope getting his chances but what we saw with the way he passed that ball to John Stones, obviously John Stones is going to get the blame for it, there wasn’t a lot going on, for me it wasn’t a pass that he should have made,” Wright said on ITV Sport.

“He passed it in a way that he had to deal with it. It was a poor decision for the goalkeeper to give him the ball in the first place.

“So I feel for him because he has had a great season and now people are going to judge him following that.”

Roy Keane took a different view, however, and felt as though Stones was guilty of a lapse in concentration.

“There were obviously parts of the game they were disappointed with. John Stones, some defenders do get bored and I think he may have that in his make-up,” said the Irishman.

“I’m going to disagree with Wrighty, I don’t think it was the keeper’s fault tonight.

“Okay, he didn’t give him a great ball but Stones is used to playing out from the back with Man City. Lack of concentration, Stones got bored. That’s why they gave away the goal. I wouldn’t blame the goalkeeper for that.”
