  • Robert David "Robbie" Keane is an Irish professional footballer who plays as a striker and is captain of both Los Angeles Galaxy and the Republic of Ireland national football team. Keane has scored a total of 65 goals for the Irish national team between 25 March 1998 and 11 October 2014, making him the all-time record Irish scorer. He is currently the highest international scorer among active players following Miroslav Klose's retirement in August 2014. He is the fifth highest scoring European in history, behind Hungary's Puskás and Kocsis and Germany's Gerd Müller and Klose. Keane was Ireland's top scorer at the 2002 FIFA World Cup with three goals as they reached the Last 16, and also played at UEFA Euro 2012. Keane began his professional career at Wolverhampton Wanderers, scoring twice on his first team debut aged 17. The following season he was the club's leading goalscorer and scored his first international goal with Republic of Ireland. He changed club frequently between 1999 and 2002, breaking transfer fee records, but his brief spells at Inter Milan and Leeds United were unexceptional. He joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2002 and played there for six years.
