Robbie Keane - International Caps and Goal Scoring Record

Robbie Keane has scored some vital goals for the Irish soccer team during his international football career. With 68 goals Keane is the top goal scorer for the Republic of Ireland ever.

Below is a comprehensive catalogue of all goals scored and international caps earned by Keane. The list outlines every team that Robbie played against when playing for the Irish senior team. It also details the dates and venues where he scored all of his international goals.

The list includes Robbie Keane's first goals for Ireland against Malta 1998, Keane's hat trick against San Marino in 2006 during the 2008 Euro Qualification campaign, and Robbie's memorable goal against Germany in the 2002 World Cup finals, and his 50th goal for Ireland against Macedonia, amongst others. It also includes the hat trick that Keane scored against the Faroe Islands, in a 2014 World Cup qualifier, on the occasion when he won his 126th cap.

This match also marked Ireland's 200th win at senior international level. Keane became the first player to score three hat tricks for Ireland when he bagged three goals in the first 17 minutes of a Euro 2016 qualifier against Gibraltar in October 2014.

The longest barren spell at international level for Robbie Keane was an eight match run between 2 September 2000 and 10 November 2001 when he failed to score any goals for the Irish team. His longest scoring streak was four consecutive matches that included three matches at the 2002 World Cup finals (Germany, Saudi Arabia, Spain) and a friendly against Finland plus a four match streak in 2011.

Robbie Keane won his 100th cap for the Republic of Ireland at the Aviva Stadium on 18th August 2010 in a 0-1 defeat to Argentina. He scored his last goal for Ireland on the occasion of his last appearance for his country. In a friendly against Oman on 31st of August 2016 Keane scored his 68th international goal in his last match for Ireland. It was a fitting end to a truly amazing international career.
