Roy Keane jokes about Saipan after Ireland reach Euro 2016

Roy Keane says that the Republic of Ireland should do well at Euro long as they avoid Saipan.

After securing qualification for next year's tournament in France, Martin O'Neill's assistant manager poked fun at his own chequered history with the Boys in Green, namely the infamous 'Saipan Incident' which resulted in his 2002 World Cup being cut prematurely short.

The story is too old to be commented.
