This is just a deep dump into a fantasy world where Robbie Keane puts on an Ireland shirt at the peak of his career and helps get this current side to the Football World Cup. The Republic of Ireland Football World Cup team has managed five goals in five games throughout the current FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying campaign.

One of those goals came via a striker, James Collins, in our qualifying opener against Serbia. Two have come from defenders, one from a midfielder, and one own-goal. Why are we not putting the ball in the back of the net? You could question the build-up play, the lack of support, or the young core of attacking options that are gaining experience.
Nonetheless, the void left when Robbie Keane hung up his boots has yet to be filled. On paper and statistics aside, he’s been our best striker in history. It’s really hard to point out a ‘peak’ version of Robbie Keane in a green shirt. 2006-2008 were his best goal-scoring years in Premier League Football.
Conversely, 2011 and 2013 were his best goal-scoring years for the national side – the latter a mere three years off his international retirement. To create a fair comparison, we’ve combined an average of his goals in qualifying campaigns for other Football World Cups, and taken a look at what teams he scored against.
It’s only right to not expect all of Keane’s goals to come against the current Portugal side for example. So it’s his average goal but compared to where each team was in their group. Keane scored in all four FIFA World Cup qualifying campaigns he played in. To know more about Qatar World Cup Tickets click here.
He scored a total of eighteen goals across the four campaigns, averaging out at 4.5 goals per qualification. As the current campaign isn’t over, we’re going to round that down to four goals, so Keane basically would have given you four goals so far in this Football World Cup qualifying campaign.
He scored twice in the build-up to the FIFA World Cup 2002, four goals ahead of 2006 and six times in 2010 and 2014 Football World Cup qualifying respectively. Five of these goals came against the Faroe Islands. Considering the Republic of Ireland Football World Cup team got beaten by Luxembourg gone by, we’d still have taken those goals.
