Robbie Keane is hoping the Republic of Ireland will reap the rewards of his loan spell at Aston Villa.

The 31-year-old striker opted to spend part of the MLS shutdown back in the Barclays Premier League rather than in pre-season training with LA Galaxy, and that decision worked out well for both parties. Keane scored three times in seven appearances for Villa, and will head into the friendly against the Czech Republic in Dublin brimming with confidence.

Asked what he had gained from his time in the midlands, he said: "Keeping fit, getting games under my belt - it couldn't have worked out better for me. That's the way I wanted it to go, to get games and keep myself fit."
