With a crunch qualifier against Germany coming up this weekend, Ireland fans will be feeling a little more confident after watching Robbie Keane smash in a world class volley for the LA Galaxy over the weekend.
They lost the match 2-1 to Real Salt Lake but who cares about MLS results? Just send us the odd bit of footage of Beckham taking a free-kick and we’ll be happy.
Keano, who has scored 15 goals for LA this season, is in form and ready to maintain Ireland’s good record against one of football’s world powers. Who can forget his late equaliser during the 2002 World Cup?
In seven meetings between the two nations the spoils have been split evenly with two wins a-piece and three draws. Germany have also never won Irish soil .
