Roy Keane, evidently of the opinion that the Portuguese should always be included from the off on such high-profile occasions, therefore made his frustrations known post-match.

Jamie Carragher, however, quickly challenged the Irishman’s view on the matter, culminating in a heated debate between the one-time Manchester United and Liverpool stars:
