Robbie Keane 'up there with the very best in the world', says Brady

Former Republic of Ireland international Liam Brady has hailed Robbie Keane as one of the best goal-scorers in the world after the striker announced his international retirement.

Keane revealed that he would bring the curtain down on his 18-year Ireland career on Wednesday and that his swansong would be the friendly game against Oman at the Aviva Stadium on August 31.

The 36-year-old holds the record for both appearances and goals for Ireland, scoring 67 times in 145 games in the green shirt.

And Brady says that Ireland are going to miss the LA Galaxy attacker.

“He’s been a great goal-scorer for Ireland, a great player for Ireland,” Brady told RTE. "He has a great goal-scoring record, up there with the very best in the world.

“I think there’s only [Miroslav] Klose, in modern day footballers, who is better than Robbie. So I think that says it all.

"We’re going to miss him and miss him badly.

THE GIRL WHO ESCAPED FROM THE TALIBAN AND BECAME A SOCCER STAR

Every day, the girl who wasn’t supposed to play crept a little closer to the action. First to the perimeter of the soccer facility. Next to the low-slung fence surrounding the field. Then to the top of the fence, the better to sit and watch the local kids practice, amazed that girls could participate. She even started returning stray balls.

Soon enough, 12-year-old Nadia Nadim and her new friends at the refugee camp in Denmark–both girls and boys, a concept which was still very new for her–discovered that the bushes lining the soccer field next door were flush with abandoned balls. The boys and girls collected as many balls as they could, and then started playing on the field when the local children weren’t using it.

Eventually, Nadim mustered the courage to ask the coach of the girls’ team if she could play, a decision that unwittingly put her on a path to becoming one of the best strikers in the world.
