Watch incredible moment Kazakhstan's Abiken scored from kick-off against Albania as Roy Keane rages at keeper

ROY KEANE has blasted Albania's keeper Etrit Berisha who conceded straight from kick off in his side's 3-1 victory over Kazakhstan in the Nations League.

Berisha, was lobbed by Kazakhstan's Aybol Abiken from the centre-circle, who had noticed the keeper was off his line when play resumed.

Keane, 49, was furious with Berisha's complacency and made his feelings known while he was covering the game as a pundit.

He raged: "You wouldn't forgive him. International football? What was he doing?! It's just…"

"You'd never forgive him for that. Stupid. I'm angry watching it."

The error came as Albania lead the game 2-0, giving Kazakhstan an opportunity to get back in the match.

But fortunately for Berisha, his mistake wasn't fatal as Albania went on to win the match 3-1.

Barcelona B striker Rey Manaj scored from the penalty spot to finally put the game to bed.

Albania's victory means they can top the group if they beat current leaders Belarus on Wednesday.

Kazakhstan on the other hand will have to beat Lithuania on Wednesday to avoid the relegation play-offs scheduled for March 2022.

England fans will miss the opportunity to see them in the Nations League after their loss to Belgium last night.

Despite their loss, Gareth Southgate praised the England players and defended said they were 'excellent.'

Speaking after the defeat he said: "The scoreline does feel harsh. We don’t like losing football matches but I’ve got to give enormous credit to the players.

“Right the way through the game we created problems with the ball and defended resiliently. I feel we were excellent."
