Roy Keane has been a breath of fresh air on World Cup punditry once again during this tournament.
Now a longtime fixture on ITV's major tournament coverage, he is a mainstay of their punditry panels in Qatar once again.
His presence is badly needed. Not only does he provide some quality entertainment, but he is also an impartial voice on a panel that is usually consisting of former England players.
Last night was a prime example. Footage emerged after the game of Gary Neville and Ian Wright celebrating after England's second goal against Senegal, but the Cork man had a very different response.

It led to one burning question: what was he actually writing down?
There have been some interesting suggestions.

We feared we would never know the truth.
Now, we might have an answer.
Gary Neville clears up Roy Keane mystery
One of the only people who could have cleared up this situation would get in touch to let us know.
Gary Neville shared the Balls tweet, with a simple response of 'game over'.

It's not quite as creative as we would have hoped for, but it sounds about right.
That goal did all but end the game as a contest, with England going on to win comfortably from that point. Keane was very complimentary about their performance post-match, with Jude Bellingham in particular catching his eye:
He’s going to be a superstar that kid, the word we keep saying, maturity, it’s like he’s played 100 times for England. Fantastic performance...
I've not seen a young midfielder perform like that for years. You usually see that from a world class midfielder who is 26 or 27, everything he did in the game.
You talk about his brain. You look at him and he's a man, but he has got that maturity in decision making. What's going on upstairs is huge for a midfielder, your maturity, decision making, that final pass.
The kid has everything.
It will be interesting to see how impressed he is after the come up against France in the next round.
