Incredible Robbie Keane shooting practice video shows what Ireland will miss

Robbie Keane hung up his international boots today after a glittering Ireland career.

The 36-year-old, who scored 67 goals in 145 appearances for the Boys in Green, will play his final Ireland match next Wednesday against Oman at the Aviva Stadium.

The Dubliner released a heartfelt statement today, showing precisely how much it meant to him to play for and captain his country.

This video, with the F2 freestylers at LA Galaxy's training ground, is proof that Keano's skills are yet to wane.

While he naturally lost pace over the years, it is clear that the brilliant goalscorer in Keane is still alive and well.

It's no wonder he plans to continue his club career in America.

Both Ireland and their fans will no doubt sorely miss the country's record goalscorer, who undoubtedly still has much to offer in the MLS.

​For the day that's in it, this is a video worth watching:
