After Roy Keane and Ian Wright’s on-air argument about England’s World Cup semi-final exit, it seems the pair’s friendship has weathered the storm.

In a tasty exchange in the ITV studio, former Republic of Ireland midfielder Keane said England fans went overboard while former England striker Wright felt the supporters had every right to get excited.

The debate became heated quite quickly before presenter Mark Pougatch intervened, but if fans had concerns about the relationship between the pair, they needn’t have worried.

All smiles then ahead of England’s third-place play-off against Belgium, but is there something odd about seeing Keane in something other than his punditry garb?

Like seeing a school teacher in the shops at the weekend, isn’t it?
