AMAZING GESTURE! Robbie Keane Set To Donate His 67 International Goals To Charity!


FOLLOWING his announcement that he is to retire from international football, Ireland’s all-time leading goalscorer surprised the public with a huge act of kindness.

Keane, 36, will carry on scoring for fun in the MLS for LA Galaxy, but with his decision to no longer make himself available for Ireland, the Tallaght man confirmed he will donate all 67 of his goals to charity.

“I don’t have any use for them anymore so it seemed like the decent thing to do,” Keane, who will wear the green of Ireland one last time against Oman, explained.

While the charity in question has yet to be revealed, it is thought the recipient could sell the goals for large sums to struggling football nations such as England for use in future games, netting a tidy sum for the charity.

“This is just a testament to Robbie’s character, a great lad and a great servant of Irish football,” Ireland manager Martin O’Neill shared with WWN.

“Now ideally we’d buy them back from the charity, as to be honest, we’ll need them,” O’Neill added, confirming the FAI were willing to spend as much as €4 on each of Keane’s 67 goals.
