Italy Squad is dusty as fuck


Candreva is their best player followed by Bernardeschi


Another team who are so lucky the format isn't 16 teams anymore

"I wanted to kill some of them last night," he said.

"They should count their blessings they've managed to get on the flight - a reality check for one or two players who thought they were good players."

Republic manager Martin O'Neill named his 23-man Euro 2016 squad immediately after the defeat at Turner's Cross.

But speaking on Wednesday afternoon, Keane made clear his unhappiness at the commitment of the Irish players in Tuesday's game.

"If you lose it (the ball), run back - and run back like you care."

Keane disappointed by McGeady showing

Aiden McGeady was among the Euro 2016-bound players who struggled to make an impression in Cork, with his lack of recent game time apparent.

McGeady moved on loan from Everton to Sheffield Wednesday in January but struggled to make an impression with the Championship club and was not required for last Saturday's play-off final against Hull City.

Keane said that he gave McGeady "credit" for seeking more action at Wednesday but admitted he was disappointed with the winger's display.

"He can do a lot better but maybe that's the story of Aiden's career," added Keane.

"Would Aiden find himself lucky to be on the flight? Well, he'll need to play better than he did last night to force his way into the starting XI."





Keane is fucked.

Needs to low it, hanging players out to dry has never worked for him before.

Needs to separate his profession from his media duties.
