Roy Keane didn't think so but was Ian Wright right to be celebrating or should supporters want more?

Following England's heartbreaking loss to Croatia after extra time in the semi-finals of the epic footballing tournament that has been Russian Federation 2018, the pair got into a right old ding-dong in the TV studio.

"Roy Keane is just terrible I am sorry".

Keane continued: "Everyone's talking about the final and football's coming home", before Wright interjected with his own verbal volley.

The former Manchester United and Ireland captain joined host Pougatch and a panel completed by former England internationals Gary Neville, Lee Dixon and Ian Wright.

Croatian have too much class in their ranks and goals from Ivan Perisic and, in extra time, Mario Mandzukic saw them win 2-1. "And I know Ian made the point a few weeks ago a little bit tongue in cheek".

A fired up Keane started the debate as he suggested many England fans had lost track of reality as they got carried away with the excitement of their World Cup run, with Wright eager to snap back at the Irishman in typically jovial fashion. "We were just having a laugh with you", Wright said in his famous London accent. He reckoned everyone was already planning for the final after England went further than they had ever done in a World Cup since 1990.

"The fact is we were happy, and you weren't happy with us being happy". This game can kick you where it hurts, and England will have to suffer that tonight.

"The whole yesterday and today they were talking about the final the final the final", Keane began. You know how hard it is to get to these big finals, or even get to a World Cup.

Keane did credit the English players for their efforts in reaching the semis but reserved his highest praise for the victors, Croatia.
