Wayne Rooney's biggest battle at Euro 2012 will be to stop himself becoming bored while he serves a two-match suspension, according to former Republic of Ireland midfielder Roy Keane.

The Manchester United forward, who is currently recovering from a minor toe problem, must watch from the sidelines as Roy Hodgson's men take on France and then Sweden after being punished for a red card when he kicked Miodrag Dzudovic during a 2-2 draw with Montenegro in October.

"English and Irish players are the same, I don't think we are good at hanging around hotels and training camps in the middle of nowhere," said former Manchester United captain Keane, who will be at Euro 2012 as part of ITV Sport's media panel.
