Keane may not have been impressed by Wright's attempts to mimic his Irish accent as voices were raised in the ITV studio, but the discussion appeared to end on a good note, with fellow panelists Gary Neville and Lee Dixon doing their best not to laugh as the duo went toe-to-toe.
England had been gripped by World Cup fever following the team's march to the semi-final stage, with popular English terrace chant "Football's coming home" making a revival among fans. Wrighty was having none of it.
"Before the game, the whole talk was about the final, the final", began Keane, directing his comments at Wright.
And a third claimed: "Roy Keane was in the studio trying to undermine John Stones who was vast tonight - he's a smug little s***".
"I made the point a few weeks ago, I know a bit tongue-in-cheek but you have to focus on one game and football's coming home".
Roy Keane said: "I don't mind ya being happy but you were getting carried away". And I was right. You needed a reality check.
One person said: "Watching Ian Wright and Roy Keane shouting over each other for two minutes was the worst TV I've seen in a long time".
As Keane built up steam, Wright interrupts to insist he never declared England were going to win the World Cup. You know how hard it is to get to these finals or even get to the World Cup.
Keane responded saying England should have taken the tournament "one day at a time".
Ultimately accusing them of not showing enough quality, Keane believed the inexperience of their players, and a lack of trophies won by the players in their club careers, told throughout: 'It was a step too far for them'.
Let's hope Wrighty and Keano are sat next to each other on the plane home from Russian Federation.
