After the game, the panel decided to have some fun by getting Keane to pick a star-studded side.

The 50-year-old initially picked Peter Schmeichel ahead of David de Gea and Edwin van der Sar… although he said he was “not as good” as everyone thought.

He then went with Gary Neville at right-back… calling him a “very good teammate” and a “top pro”.

Keane’s compatriot Denis Irwin made it at left-back and was hailed as a “brilliant character”.

Choosing centre-backs was Keane’s most difficult task, but he opted for Jaap Stam and Gary Pallister… the latter narrowly beating Rio Ferdinand.

Keane’s midfield also had a strong 1990s feel, with Bryan Robson and Paul Ince making the cut ahead of Class of 92 legend Paul Scholes.

Ince was described as a “brilliant player” whom Keane would have with him “in the trenches”.

Keano then told of Robson that he had great “courage”.

Class of 92 Pairs Ryan Giggs and David Beckham were selected on the flanks, with Keane calling both “consistent”.

Keane also gushed about the way Becks used to train and spoke of the “shift” he always took.

He then finished his team by pre-selecting Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney – both of whom he had played with during their teenage superstar days.
