BORED England fans turned their attention to “haunted lighthouse keeper” Roy Keane during a dreadful game against the USA.

The Three Lions struggled during the opening 45 minutes and could not replicate their formidable performance against Iran from Monday.

Keane’s beard, shirt and general demeanour got England fans talking amid a poor game of World Cup football

And after a dreary first-half that did little to energise football fans, the spotlight shifted to the pundits.

Keane, on duty for ITV, caught the interest of viewers for his interesting World Cup look as he analysed the match.

The Irishman was sporting a thick greying beard and wore a patterned grey, beige and white shirt.

Twitter users were relentless as they poked fun of the former Manchester United midfielder.

One said: “Roy Keane, looking more than ever like a haunted lighthouse keeper facing a deep personal crisis.”

The theme continued as another tweeter said: “Roy Keane looks about three years away from living in a lighthouse.”

Meanwhile, bored fans were also taken aback by Keane’s shirt.

One person said: “Roy Keane wearing a shirt that looks like he stapled three carpet samples together.”


Another wrote: “Weird feeling when you’ve just watched a #Eng game and your main post match question is ‘where did Roy Keane get his shirt from?’

A third person wrote: “Roy Keane shirt and beard combo….horrific.”

When the action did get underway in the second-half, things did not improve.

Both sides once again struggled to create chances and even England’s Wags struggled to pretend they were entertained.

The game ended 0-0 and boos could be heard at the full-time whistle.

Despite the uninspiring performance, England know they are all but through to the knock-outs unless they suffer a complete collapse against Wales.

Meanwhile, it’s win or bust for the USA in their final group game against Iran.
