WATCH: Roy Keane nails the crossbar challenge during Ireland training

Roy Keane may have hung up his boots a good while ago now, but he proved today he’s still got the touch.

The Republic of Ireland assistant manager was at training with the Irish team at the National Sports Campus, as the squad prepare for their crucial Euro 2016 qualifiers later this week.

Some of them were warming up with a few tries at the Crossbar Challenge, and Keano showed his class by nailing it first time.

With thanks to the National Sports Campus Facebook page for the video.

He even got the ball back to his feet!

Form is temporary, etc etc.
