On this page you’ll find all merchandize cards from Roy Keane and his international career for the Republic of Ireland and that I actually own. I don’t copy & paste pictures from all around the internet. So chances are that these aren’t all cards available. If you like to suggest one or more cards for me to complete my collection, just give me a hint in the commentary section on this page. Thanks in advance!

  • Roy Keane         Republic of Ireland

A midfield player who made his debut for Nottingham Forest at Liverpool. Keane has emerged as one of the most sought after players in Europe carrying a £6 million price tag on his shoulders. For the Republic of Ireland he has simply been outstanding and in a recent World Cup qualifier against Spain received the ultimate accolade from Diego Maradona, who described him as the best midfielder he had seen in recent years.
Keane’s strengths are his forward runs, accurate passing, tough tackling and eye for goal.
It’s a lethal combination that has proved essential for the success of Jack Charlton’s Republic of Ireland and one of the reasons why they remain a constant threat to the big guns in international football.

  • Roy Keane
  • [English] Roy Keane stormed onto the British Soccer scene in the 1990-91 season at the age of 19, finishing that year in a Cup Final appearance at Wembley and his first full Irish cap against Chile. Keane’s penetrating and forceful runs from midfield have earned him over 20 goals for his club and made him one of the Republic’s most feared players. He is sure to be one of the key figures in coach Jack Charlton’s World Cup plans.
  • [German] Roy Keane stürmte im jungen Alter von 19 Jahren in der Saison 1990-91 die britische Fußballbühne und krönte dieses Jahr mit einer Pokalfinalteilnahme im Wembley-Stadion und seinem ersten Spiel für die Nationalelf über die gesamte Spieldauer gegen Chile. Seine kraftvollen, kaum zu stoppenden Alleingänge, zu denen er gern im Mittelfeld ansetzt, haben ihm im Verein schon 20 Tore eingebracht und ihn zu einem der gefürchtetsten Spieler im irischen Team werden lassen. Er wird sicherlich auch eine Schlüsselrolle bei den WM-Plänen von Trainer Jack Charlton spielen.

WORLD CUP FANTASTIC FACTS
The Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, Washington DC, is the home of the Washington Redskins, the celebrated American football team, who play there in front of a regular 56,000 capacity crowd.
► A soccer match once drew 53,000 to the stadium, when the Washington Diplomats met the New York Cosmos in 1980.

WORLD CUP GLORY
Only two countries have hosted the World Cup twice. Mexico staged the wonderful spectacle of the 1970 finals – Brazil rampant in the Final, a seven-goal thriller between Italy and West Germany in the semi, and the trauma of England surrendering a 2-0 lead in the quarter-final. Colombia were originally chosen to host the 1986 tournament, but Mexico stepped in after their withdrawal and gave us the World Cup of Maradona and another South American success. Italy staged the finals in 1934 and 1990.

As the influential force and captain of Manchester United and Ireland, Keane would have to be known as one of the best midfielders in Europe. His consistently high level work-rate, his drive and determination, and no compromise attitude stand him out from the rest.
