Robbie Keane was happy to savour the thrill of impending play-off victory in Tallinn after sampling the bitter taste of failure in Paris two years ago.

The Republic of Ireland skipper struck twice at the A Le Coq Arena on Friday night as his side blasted four unanswered goals past Estonia in the first leg of their Euro 2012 showdown.

Keane said: "It's amazing how football can turn around for you. The lads were devastated in the dressing room [in Paris], and now we don't know what to do with ourselves."
