ROY KEANE hailed England’s World Cup “swagger” and urged Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions to “go all out” against France.
England meet the reigning champions of 2018 in the quarter-finals on Saturday after beating Senegal 3-0.
And Manchester United legend Keane spoke about the chances for the Southgate side.
He said on ITV: “At this stage of the competition you will be up against teams, they will always have one or two special players.
“But that’s part of the challenge. England have a bit of swagger of their own.
“Of course you have to look at the opponents and their strengths, but England should be brave and strong and really go for it.”
France beat Poland 3-1 to advance to the last eight before England kept a third straight clean sheet.
Goals from Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka helped defeat Senegal.
And ex-Liverpool manager Graeme Souness believes England’s style of play will strike fear into any opposition.
Souness said: “France will be worried about playing England. England is the team nobody wants to play against.
“You can’t sit back and say ‘I’m really enjoying this football’ like you would with Spain and possibly tonight.
“But I bet none of the big teams want to play England because they see how pragmatic they are, they give very few chances.”
England play France at Al Bayt Stadium, with the winner securing a place in the semi-finals.
