Roy Keane came in for some stick from fellow analyst Ian Wright over his jumper during ITV’s coverage of France’s 1-0 win over Germany.
The former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland midfielder wore a jumper with several bands on the left sleeve and was the subject of Wright’s joke shortly after presenter Mark Pougatch referred to Wales needing their captain for .
Wright quipped: “Yeah, like Roy – he had to keep his armband on his jumper!”
Wright, Pougatch and Keane’s old adversary Patrick Vieira joined in with the laughter before Wright added: “I like it, though, I like it.”
Pougatch said: “Two captains, one armband.”
Wright added: “He’s letting us know he’s a captain.”
Meanwhile, France head coach Didier Deschamps felt his side looked comfortable as they began their Euro 2020 campaign .
Mats Hummels’ own goal saw the reigning world champions seal a tight 1-0 win at the Allianz Arena.
The experienced defender could not adjust his feet quickly enough, turning a Lucas Hernandez cross past Manuel Neuer after 20 minutes of the Group F clash.
Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema had goals ruled out for offside in the second half but it mattered little in the end as France took three points from their first game in a group that also includes Portugal and Hungary.
Speaking to M6, Deschamps said: “We played a great game against very good opponents. I knew my players would be ready and we were up for the fight.
“We weren’t far away from scoring the second goal that would have made us safe, but we didn’t suffer that much in the second half. It was a strong match with quality and talent.”
Germany face Portugal next and Joshua Kimmich said: “We have the level to keep up with the top teams. France are a big favourite in this tournament, but in the next match we need to show that we are also among the contenders.
“We were not the worst team today. We dominated the match and conceded a stupid goal to fall behind. I think a draw would have been deserved.”
