Roy Keane mocked by ITV pundits over ‘captain’s armband’ jumper worn for France’s Euro 2020 win over Germany

THEY think it’s pullover… but it’s not now.

Manchester United legend Roy Keane was mocked after appearing to refresh his legendary battle of the skippers with Arsenal icon Patrick Vieira… by wearing a jumper with FOUR captain’s stripes as he sat next to HIM in the ITV studio.

Fellow pundit Ian Wright teased Keane over his odd outfit live on air after France’s 1-0 win over Germany.

And social media also pounced on the former Republic of Ireland hardman’s sartorial signal, many labelling it a “powerplay”.

Keane had clearly kept his gesture up his sleeve as Vieira played it straight with his own garb, wearing an open-neck shirt and suit jacket.

Wrighty said: “Had to keep his armband on his jumper… letting us know he’s the captain.”

Twitter, though, was quick to pick up on Keane’s jumper jape.

One armchair viewer got straight to the point: “Roy Keane wears four captain’s armbands to show Patrick Vieira who is in charge.”

Another said: “What a power move against Vieira.”

And similarly: “I like how Roy Keane’s got a captain’s armband printed on his pullover just to show everybody who’s the boss .”

But if Vieira felt Keane was having a little nibble at him, then imagine how fellow Frenchman Paul Pogba must have felt.

Gemany defender Antonio Rudiger seemed to have a little CHEW  on the United midfielder’s back in an astonishing first-half incident.

But unlike on the field, where Keane’s steely expression matched his tough tackling, he seemed wrong-footed by Wrighty’s verbal assault on his wacky wardrobe choice.

And perhaps on reflection Keane will accept his attire deserved to be shown a red cardi.

Raheem Sterling reveals meditation is secret behind England heroics and insists he knew ‘dream’ moment would come

Published

THERE is a sense of calm about Raheem Sterling — and a sense of destiny, too.

The Manchester City winger has been using nightly meditation sessions to block out the noise surrounding his club future and debate over his place in England’s starting line-up.

Raheem Sterling’s dream came true when he scored for England against Croatia

And after scoring England’s winner against Croatia at Wembley — 500 yards from the house where he grew up — Sterling is adamant that his first tournament goal was nothing more than he’d expected.

There had been a clamour for Gareth Southgate to axe Sterling in favour of Jack Grealish after a dodgy run of form for City — but the England boss stayed loyal and was repaid in style.

And Sterling sounds thoroughly chilled with life inside England’s camp.

He said: “I’ve been meditating. I’m doing a little bit of meds before I go to sleep to get relaxed.

“Just taking time out, being thankful and grateful for the day. Just trying to get connected. On the whole, not a lot of us get connected to our bodies and our brains so I am trying to get everything as one, connected, and be in a good place.”

And then there’s that idea that fate had decreed Sterling would score at his old boyhood manor.

He said: “It is something that I knew would happen, to be honest with you. I always had faith that I would do something with England at Wembley, score in a tournament.

“I have always dreamt of that and to actually, finally, say I’ve done it, that is a real dream come true.

“I used to come home from training when I was at QPR, the bus journey back home, walking to my house and seeing the stadium literally being built.

“It was like, ‘It is possible — one day I will play there’. And the more I started to achieve, the more I started to believe.”

Sterling had to snub his mum, Nadine, when she rang him in the dressing room after Sunday’s winner.

He said: “Directly after the game, my mum was calling my phone when I was still in the dressing room.

“I was like, ‘Listen, I haven’t got time at the minute, I will call you back when I am on the bus’.

“When I am in the dressing room, I’m getting a massage . . . I can’t be FaceTiming my mum at that point.

“I spoke to her for a little bit and then friends and my missus, and had some really nice messages.”

These Euros are Sterling’s fourth tournament and the City man is the most-capped player in Southgate’s squad, with 62 appearances.

And he says he is using his experience to stamp out any panic among England’s tournament rookies. Sterling, 26, said: “Going into games, I think the players that have been at tournaments before are probably used to what they are going into.

“It is about trying to get that calmness in the dressing room.

“And on the pitch as well. When there are little moments of panic, trying to be the one to get us calm and get us back into a place where we are focused on the game, that is what the players who have been to a few tournaments can help with.”

Sterling claims England have a better squad than that which reached the semi-finals of the last World Cup — “100 per cent, in every area.”

And he insists that competition from the likes of Grealish have sharpened his game.

He said: “Competition is good in any walk of life. In a job in an office, if you have someone breathing down your neck, you have got to do even better.

“At the same time it is healthy competition — there is no malice, no bad blood. Everyone wants the same objective: to do well for their country.”

Sterling is refusing to consider Friday’s battle with the Auld Enemy, Scotland, as anything other than just another match, despite the historic rivalry between the two nations.

He said: “For me, it is going to be another game.

“In football you can’t get too drawn into the history, you have got to be focused on the task ahead — and the task ahead is to get three points.

“We can’t be going in there fighting old battles, we’ve got to be really concentrated.”

Although Sterling did enjoy Patrik Schick’s 50-yard wondergoal against the Scots in their 2-0 defeat by the Czech Republic on Monday.

He said: “The second goal was beautiful. A top finish.”

France star Paul Pogba may have breached Uefa’s Euro 2020 coronavirus rules by going into stands to give away his shirt

PAUL POGBA could reportedly have breached Uefa’s Euros coronavirus rules by going into the stands to give away his shirt.

The Manchester United midfielder was a standout in the 2018 World Cup winners’ opening game of the delayed European Championship.

His sublime pass to Lucas Hernandez set up France’s winning goal as Mats Hummels put into his own net.

Pogba’s performance alongside Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante saw him pick up the man of the match award.

The playmaker was so adulated he went into the stands and gave out his shirt in a heartfelt moment.

But according to BeIN Sports, it could land him trouble with Uefa and leave him facing a probe.

It was claimed on air that Pogba may have breached Covid-19 protocols by going into the stands.

And, if Uefa deem that he has, it could lead to punishment for the 28-year-old, who starred in France’s World Cup winning side three years ago.

It was an otherwise flawless performance by the former Juventus man, but he was caught up in a bizarre incident with Antonio Rudiger before half-time.

The Chelsea defender appeared to put his teeth into Pogba’s back, but replays were unable to definitively reveal if he was bitten.

The ITV punditry team argued Pogba’s reaction would indicate Rudiger did not bite him, but left them puzzled by his actions nonetheless.

Roy Keane said: “I think it was more of a nibble than a bite. It wasn’t a proper bite was it? Silly thing to do though, obviously.”

Ian Wright added: ‘”If he’s bitten him there, he’s going to flinch.

“He’s not flinched at all. He’s not flinched there. I don’t know what’s happened there. Can’t see it.”
