ROY KEANE tore into Portuguese star Joao Felix and called him an ‘imposter’ after their defeat to Belgium.

The defending champions were dumped out of Euro 2020 after Thorgan Hazard’s thunderbolt secured a 1-0 victory.

That set-up a clash between the Red Devils and Italy in the last-eight in Munich on Friday.

Portugal attempted to launch a comeback late on in an effort to force extra-time but were denied several times by Thibaut Courtois.

One of those included an effort by Cristiano Ronaldo – who Keane had hailed pre-match as the ‘most intelligent’ player he had ever seen.

Real Madrid’s ex-Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois also stopped a powerful header from Ruben Dias as Portugal finished with 23 shots in the game but without a breakthrough.

That was the most shots by any team so far at the Euros without scoring.

After watching their failed attempt for an equaliser, Keane was massively critical of Portugal’s abilities in front of goal.

And he particularly ripped into 21-year-old Felix who he says Ronaldo should be ‘going after’ in the dressing-room.

Keane told ITV: “He’s an imposter. He comes on, hit the target. what is he, £100million?

“If I was Ronaldo I’d be going after him in the dressing-room. Shocking.”

Atltico Madrid’s Felix came off the bench in the second period to help his side try and find a leveller.

It was Raphael Guerreiro who came closest when he rattled the post.

But Belgium managed to hold on to set-up the crunch clash with the Azzurri.
