  • Robert David "Robbie" Keane is an Irish footballer, who plays as a striker and is captain of both Los Angeles Galaxy and the Republic of Ireland national football team. Keane is a proven goalscorer who also doubles as a playmaker, drifting deep into midfield to help ease pressure and start attacks when he plays for the national team. Keane has scored 62 goals for the Republic of Ireland between 25 March 1998 and 15 November 2013, making him the all-time record Irish goalscorer. He is the joint second highest international scorer among active players—Miroslav Klose leads with 71. He is the fifth highest scoring European in history, alongside Hungary's Puskás and Kocsis and Germany's Müller and Klose. Keane was Ireland's top scorer at the 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan, with three goals as well as a converted penalty in the shoot-out with Spain. He became the first male Irish player to score 50 international goals in June 2011. With 130 full caps, he is Ireland's most capped player of all time and is a member of the FIFA Century Club.
