Roy Keane played the role of pundit-executioner after Ireland’s mauling by Spain on Thursday night.
If the 4-0 scoreline and La Furia Roja’s 66% possession stat wasn’t telling enough, ex-Irish international Keane made damn sure everyone knew just how awful he thought Trapattoni’s men had been.
Keane: I think the players and supporters have to change their mentality. It’s just nonsense to say how great the supporters are. The supporters want to see the players do a lot better and not give daft goals away like that.
Let’s change that attitude towards Irish supporters. Let’s not kid ourselves, they want to see their team winning, Let’s not just go along for the sing-song now and again.
It was a wake-up call for these players. The goals they gave away tonight at any level were absolutely shocking.
