Roy Keane Claims England are ‘Living in Cuckoo Land’

Roy Keane: England ‘Living in Cuckoo Land’ at Euro 2024

Keane Criticizes Southgate but Still Sees Hope

Roy Keane has criticized Gareth Southgate’s ability to address England’s lackluster performances but hasn’t ruled them out of winning Euro 2024.

England seemed poised for their worst tournament defeat since 2016 after Ivan Schranz’s first-half goal. However, Jude Bellingham’s dramatic overhead kick in the dying seconds of injury time saved the day. Harry Kane’s header in the first minute of extra time secured a 2-1 win, sending the Three Lions to the quarterfinals to face Switzerland in Dusseldorf on Saturday, July 6.

Keane Still Backs England as Contenders

Despite coming to Germany as one of the tournament favorites, England has faced criticism for their performances in all four games. Keane, among the critics, described their display as “embarrassing,” yet he still believes they could go all the way.

“It’s embarrassing at the moment but that’s what happens sometimes,” Keane told ITV. “It’s about surviving, it’s about staying in the competition. They’re staying in the fight. England keep swinging. After yesterday [Sunday], I wouldn’t be writing England off, far from it.”

Keane Warns England Fans There is No Quick Fix

While supporters hope for changes in personnel and tactics, Keane cautions against expecting quick fixes from Southgate and his staff.

“If you think Gareth and his staff are going to fix that in the next two weeks you’re living in cuckoo land,” he added. “Move onto the next game. They’ve got some momentum. Football’s about winning at the top level.”
