'Don't get me started': Roy Keane makes claim about Declan Rice before Germany game today

Roy Keane has namechecked West Ham star Declan Rice live on air, saying that it’s nice to see England get a taste of their own medicine.

The topic of discussion was centred around Jamal Musiala and his decision to reject England to play for Germany.

Bayern Munich’s wonderkid is starting a World Cup game for the first time this afternoon against Japan.

He will hope to help Germany enjoy a better tournament than in 2018 when they finished bottom of their group.

Keane is clearly still smarting from Rice’s decision to play for the Republic of Ireland and then turn his back on the country.

The West Ham midfielder is an England captain in waiting and he’s been fantastic under Gareth Southgate.

Keane also mentioned Jack Grealish when asked Musiala, with the Manchester City man also playing for Ireland before England.

The ITV pundit said live on air: “It’s nice to see England get a taste of their own medicine.

“They took players, Declan Rice, Jack Grealish – don’t get me started on that!

“It’s not easy, you have to respect what they want to do, but of course a fantastic talent with lots of potential.”

He’s one of the best pundits around but Keane clearly hasn’t forgiven Rice or Grealish just yet.

Both players made appearances for Keane’s country in friendlies, before opting to pledge their allegiance to England.

Now, the duo are rather instrumental in Southgate’s plans, with Grealish slowly but surely getting more game time.

As for Musiala, he has the potential to really take off at this World Cup.

During 2022/23, he’s scored 12 goals and registered 11 assists from 28 appearances and he looks set for stardom.

If he starts priding the good for Germany, England really will be getting a taste of their own medicine.
