Roy Keane scores winning goal past Micah Richards in ITV v BBC pundits match


Keane never celebrated a goal like that during his playing career

Roy Keane scored the winning goal in a match between ITV and BBC pundits at the World Cup in Qatar. The Irishman then celebrated by taking off his shirt and celebrating with his teammates.

The World Cup was on a rest day ahead of the quarter-finals, and the two sets of pundits and staff took on each other in a friendly match.

Keane, who turned 51 in August, scored the ‘golden goal’ winner past Micah Richards.

Earlier this week, Keane criticised the Brazil team for their dancing celebrations during their 4-1 victory over South Korea, saying:

“If they don’t like it, we don’t have much to do. Let’s keep scoring goals and dancing. It is a group that is happy to score, to win the victory and the goal. Everyone makes their own choice, what they have to do is respect it.”

Keane, however, didn’t perform any dances after he scored his goal.
