Roy Keane scored the winning goal in a friendly match between ITV and the BBC on Wednesday, before proceeding to celebrate exuberantly.
Following the conclusion of the Round of 16 fixtures on Tuesday, the World Cup entered a two-day break – the first days since the tournament began that there are no fixtures.
This meant a couple of days away for the TV pundits and journalists, with ITV taking on BBC in a friendly game instead.

And, during the game, hard-talking pundit Roy Keane scored the ‘golden goal’ in the clash after finishing past the BBC’s Micah Richards, who was in goal for his employers in Qatar.
In a clip shared by ITV on Twitter, Keane can be seen playing a pass to another colleague before Richards pulled off a fantastic save.
The ball then rebounded to the former Manchester United midfielder who powered the ball past Richards on the half volley in what was labelled a ‘golden goal’.

Keane had fumed: ‘Fantastic finish by Vinicius, great start to the game. But I’ve never seen so much dancing.
‘I can’t believe what I’m watching, I can’t believe what I’m watching, it’s like watching Strictly [Come Dancing].’
Brazil continued to offer up a variety of moves as the goals flew in, with even manager Tite getting involved as he mimicked Richarlison’s pigeon celebration following the third goal.
‘I don’t like this. People say it’s their culture. But I think that’s really disrespecting the opposition,’ Keane furiously continued.
