Republic of Ireland record goal scorer Robbie Keane has been celebrating the brith of his second son in recent days, but don't expect him to be given any time off from international duty by Roy Keane.

Keane has never come across as the cuddly feely type, so when he was asked by a reporter at Ireland's training camp whether his namesake may miss the Euro 2016 qualifier with Germany on Thursday following the new arrival in his family, the question was greeted with predictable distain.

Jeff Hendrick and David Meyler also feature in this FAI video, but it is Keano's stoney faced performance that will capture the headlines once again:
