Gary Neville Reveals Explosive Text Argument Between Roy Keane and Ian Wright Over England’s Euro 2024 Strategy

Welcome back to “It’s All Kicking Off! EUROS DAILY.”

Today, we’re diving into the storm of criticism surrounding France, Italy, and Spain as they face unexpected challenges in the tournament.

But first, let’s switch gears and talk about the drama closer to home, involving some of football’s most outspoken pundits.

Gary Neville has spilled the beans on a fiery text exchange between Roy Keane and Ian Wright.

The two pundits locked horns over England’s mentality and strategy ahead of their crucial clash with Slovenia.

England’s journey through Euro 2024 has been anything but smooth, with two draws and one win.

As the Three Lions prepare for their last-16 match at the Arena AufSchalke, tensions are running high.

On the show “Stick to Football,” sponsored by Sky Bet, Neville shared the explicit messages.

It all started when Keane texted Wright: “You brought the Euro final up, you f***ing egg!” Wright, in his usual spirited manner, exclaimed, “That’s Roy! That’s Roy to me!”

Keane didn’t hold back, criticizing former England players for not backing their talk with coaching badges.

He vented, “All ex-England players thinking they know about the game when they won f*** all.

Too lazy themselves to get their f***ing coaching badges but preach about tactics and systems.

Turns my f***ing stomach.”

Wright questioned Keane’s anger, to which Keane shot back: “Because you said something at the start! Go back to what he said!” Neville read out Wright’s critique: “History shows we don’t take the initiative when we’re winning.

Fight and desire don’t help when you’re afraid to fail.”

Keane countered with a reminder of England’s efficient victory over Germany in Euro 2020.

Wright, always full of ideas, suggested incorporating Cole Palmer into the lineup.

He praised Palmer’s progressive play and even proposed a tactical shuffle to accommodate him.

“Could you maybe put Saka at left-back, put Palmer on the right? We need balance and fluidity in the game.”

The Pundits Weigh In

Paul Scholes and Roy Keane didn’t miss their chance to respond.

Scholes mocked the idea of shifting Saka to left-back, accusing Arsenal legends of trying to protect their own.

He also had advice for the midfield, urging a forward-thinking approach from Declan Rice and emphasizing the strengths of Mainoo, Foden, and Bellingham.

The Bigger Picture

As debates rage and strategies are scrutinized, England fans are holding their breath.

The nation’s hopes rest on Southgate’s ability to get the best out of his squad in this high-stakes tournament.
