AS THE FIRST ones out on the training pitch, Ireland’s coaching team of Roy Keane, Steve Guppy, Steve Walford and Seamus McDonagh regularly entertain themselves with a variety of games.

Crossbar challenge is popular, while they also enjoy rolling balls to see who can leave theirs closest to the cone.

At their Versailles base at the Stade de Montbauron this morning, goalkeeping coach McDonagh was taking his shot when Keane sent him flying by flicking a ball into his path.

No, I never touched him,” Keane joked afterwards. “He dived! You know what goalkeepers are like.”
