Keane bags brace in Dublin victory

Published Add your comment

Robbie Keane underlined his enduring class by scoring twice in the Republic of Ireland's emphatic 5-0 win over 10-man Northern Ireland.

The Tottenham striker, likely to be looking for a new club this summer, moved within two goals of an international half-century as the Republic crushed their neighbours in the Carling Nations Cup in Dublin.

Stephen Ward and Simon Cox marked their international debuts with a goal and Northern Ireland's misery was compounded by a Craig Cathcart own goal and a red card for Adam Thompson.
