Roy Keane ‘annoyed’ by Senegal fans minutes into ITV coverage

Roy Keane found himself annoyed by Senegal supporters before their World Cup clash with England had even got underway as the grumpy pundit played up to his reputation on ITV.

The former Manchester United midfielder has been praised for his World Cup analysis in Qatar and was once again centre stage as England took on Senegal in the round of 16.

The fixture went ahead with a backdrop of the noisy Senegal band as well as dancing and singing supporters – with Mark Pougatch asking for the thoughts of Keane as well as Gary Neville and Ian Wright.

With Neville and Wright praising the singing of the fans and their accompanying instruments – the Arsenal hero went as far as to call it amazing.

Keane then said it was 'annoying' with presenter Pougatch trying to cheer the Irishman up by mentioning the colourful flags and the joy of fans.

Keane then concluded: "It is [the World Cup] and it is lovely, but it is annoying."

Keane got a laugh from fans earlier in the tournament by mocking England players and their love of darts – also hitting the news thanks to his clash with Graeme Souness.

After England had drawn with the United States in the group, Keane said: "We’ll be here all night making excuses.

"It’s for lots of teams, you’re a professional footballer, and you travel all over Europe playing different conditions, they were playing darts last night."

England came into the game as huge favourites, having had the best group record of any team in the competition despite drawing 0-0 with the US.

Senegal impressed to reach the second round by beating Ecuador in their final group fixture despite the absence of injured talisman Sadio Mane.

The winner of the contest would book a quarter-final clash against France, who saw off the threat of Poland thanks to Kylian Mbappe's brace in a 3-1 win.
