BornJuly 8, 1980

Robert David "Robbie" Keane is an Irish footballer, who plays as a striker for the Los Angeles Galaxy and captains the Republic of Ireland national football team. eane has scored 54 goals for the Republic of Ireland from 25 March 1998 to 7 September 2012, making him the all-time record Irish goalscorer, having become the first male Irish player to score 50 international goals in June 2011. He is the 26th highest international scorer in the history of International football, and the third highest International scorer among active players. Keane was Ireland's top scorer at the 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan, with three goals plus a converted penalty in the shoot-out with Spain. Keane began his professional career at Wolverhampton Wanderers, scoring twice in his first team debut aged 17. He changed club frequently between 1999 and 2002, breaking transfer fee records, but his brief spells at Internazionale andLeeds United were unexceptional. He joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2002 and played there for six years. The 2007–08 season was the most fruitful of his career as he set a career record of 23 goals in a season, scored a landmark 100th competitive goal for Tottenham and won his first senior honour, the League Cup. He moved to Liverpool in July 2008 but he spent only six months at the club and soon returned to Tottenham and was made first team captain. In January 2010, Keane moved on loan to Scottish Premier League side Celtic for the rest of the season. He left Tottenham for Los Angeles Galaxy in 2011. On 21 January 2012, Keane achieved the extremely rare feat of having scored goals in competitions for ten different clubs, when he scored twice for Aston Villa against former club Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.
