Roy Keane trolled by Ian Wright as Euros pundit ‘wears £1,200 armband’

Roy Keane was trolled by Ian Wright during ITV's coverage of France's win over Germany as the former England striker mocked Keane's £1,200 "armband".

Keane, Wright and Patrick Vieira were all on hand to provide their expertise of the 1-0 victory for Les Bleus, courtesy of an own goal from Mats Hummels.

When former footballers take to TV studios, they have been known for dressing sharply.

However, former Manchester United and Ireland captain Keane took a slightly more informal approach for Tuesday night's coverage.

The hard-tackling ex-midfielder, who was known for his abrasive leadership, was wearing a grey jumper with four lines on the left arm in a similar position to where a captain's armband would sit.

It just so turns out that the jumper in question is a Thom Browne number worth a whopping £1,200.

But that didn't stop Wright having a cheeky swipe at his co-pundit, even forcing him to a crack a rare smile.

Introducing a new segment, ITV presenter Mark Pougatch said: "I think Wales need their captain… the man who wears the armband to lead tomorrow…"

Wright jumped in, saying: "Yeah like Roy… He had to keep his armband on his jumper."

The awkward looking Keane did not offer a response, but he did offer a smile as Wright howled with laughter.

Before the ex-Arsenal man added: "I like it though. I like it. He's letting us know he's the captain."

Before he was mocked for his fashion, Keane was waxing lyrical about Portugal's record breaking captain Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Juventus forward scored twice in the 3-0 win over Hungary to become the top scorer in Euro's history.

And Keane admitted that he is surprised how well Ronaldo continues to bang in the goals at the age of 36.

"He’s amazing," said Keane. "The hardest part in football is scoring, and he does it for fun. I still enjoy watching him play.

"I am surprised he scored today as he had such a bad season with Juventus, I think he only scored 36 and I thought his confidence might be down.

"I keep using the same word for him, I was fortunate to play with him for a year or two, the guy is a genius and he’s one of the best players of all time.

"We are fortunate to watch him and I was fortunate enough to play with him. The guy is a machine, a beast and I love watching him.

"We now know that he’s not getting involved in build-up play or getting on the end of things, but his goal record is amazing."
