Keane slates ‘abysmal’ Rose after England defeat

Roy Keane slated the performance of Danny Rose after the Tottenham man featured in England’s 2-1 defeat against the Czech Republic.

Rose had a poor game in Prague, where the hosts came from behind after his Spurs team-mate Harry Kane had put England ahead with an early penalty.

A win in the Euro 2020 qualifier would have sealed England’s qualification for next summer’s tournament.

They now need to bounce back next week against Bulgaria – a match Rose will miss through suspension after picking up a first-half yellow card against the Czechs.

And pundit Keane pulled no punches in his assessment of Rose’s display – and suggested the player is unlikely to learn any lessons.

Speaking on ITV, the former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland star said: “Rose gave a performance tonight…my goodness, someone’s got to get hold of that guy.

“He was shocking. Abysmal. And I think he’ll be the same in another three or four years.

“Some players don’t learn from their mistakes, that’s the big problem. At the highest level, you will suffer for it.”

Earlier, Keane was also scathing in his half-time assessment of Rose’s first-half performance, accusing him of “strolling” through the game as England struggled.

Kane’s goal was his seventh in his last five England matches but the striker also missed a good chance to score before the Czechs scored their winner.
